You can buy a decent spokeshave for less than £20 brand new, the metal-bodied Stanley #151 style (there are many brands making this model) bevel down is the one Paul Sellers recommends. You will likely only need a flat-bottomed version at first, instead of the round-bottomed version, this is because the round-bottomed versioned isn’t needed so often, only in very tight radiuses of less than 6” (152mm) in diameter.
