As they are so unusual in shape they needed hangers which were fit to their shapes. The concave shave was first.
The profile was traced onto a piece of walnut and two pieces were cut together on the bandsaw and oscillating sander. When separated they symmetrically formed a shoe to hold the shave in place. These pieces were glued to a backing board which was cut to size.

For the more unusually shaped convex shave I found that I could use the upper bracket of the convex shave to hold the blade in place. However this would mean cutting away the backing board resulting in two shoes.
The lower shoe was shaped and mounted underneath the spoke shave. Again a magnet was glued into place in a hole drilled into the inner face of the door.
The resulting arrangement couldn't have been better and has turned out better than anticipated.
