Shaving horse names

Postby SeanHellman » Fri Dec 19, 2014 9:22 pm

We use them all the time and shaving horse seems to be the most popular name for them.

What do you call them?

If posting a non English name, could you provide a rough translation please. Do different trades have different names for them?

banc (bench) is often used in French, usually with the trade added: e.g. banc de sabotier - also âne (donkey)...

sometime with the action (verb) rather than tha trade (noun), e.g. banc à planer (a plane in French is a drawknife, a plane is a rabot)

In the part of France in which I live (Deux Sevres) the shavehorse is known as a 'louc' though that may not be the correct spelling.

Also 'banc d'âne'see: http://www.forum-outils-anciens.com/t78 ... q=%C3%A2ne or http://www.forum-outils-anciens.com/t76 ... q=%C3%A2ne

En Belgique, le banc d'âne est appelé « chevalet à planer »

Hadn't thought much about it before but I think I''ll name this one "Bill". :wink: You may notice that this is made from the frame of my second tree fork horse having been turned in the other direction and that it has the work table, support, and leather hinge from the first horse I posted.

Less response than I expected...

Here's another: Taellehest (NL) - used by de klomperij - clog maker (klompenmaken) the term snijpaard is also used, but a search for this finds a bench used with a stock knife, so probably not the correct term...

Also spelled as Tællehest or known as a Tællestol, Tællebænk, Tælgebænk, Tælgehest, Tælgestol.

Výrobní postup
Na kuchyňské náčiní se používalo především dřevo bukové nebo javorové, které se zpracovávalo syrové. Po vysušení by bylo totiž příliš tvrdé a těžce by se opracovávalo. Středně silné bukové kmeny a silné větve byly po vytěžení dopraveny do výrobcovy usedlosti. Tam pak byly rozřezány na špalky, odpovídající délce vyráběného náčiní, s několika centimetrovou rezervou. Ty pak byly středově rozštípány na díly, tzv. štípy sekerou a palicí, nebo klíny. Dále se pak štípaly dlátem a paličkou, nebo velkým nožem na menší díly. Takto připravený štíp byl pak sekerou odkorněn a přitesán do hrubého tvaru lžíce.
Přeslen, 2. polovina 1. tis. př. Kr.

Dědek, stolice na opracování dřeva
1 – tlama, tlamka; 2 – sedátko, deska; 3 – noha, šlapátko
Pak byl srovnán pořízem ve stolici zvané dědek. Poté byly pilkou vyříznuty v předpokládané délce hlavy lžíce dva příčné šikmé zářezy do hloubky odpovídající síle držadla a přebytečný materiál se odštípnul. Tak vznikl hrubý tvar lžíce. Ten se opět upnul v dědkovi a opracoval se pořízem. Dotvoření a zakulacení hlavy lžíce a tvarování rukojeti se provedlo kapesním nožem. Prohlubeň hlavy lžíce byla vybrána škrabákem, nazývaným také očko. Začištění a uhlazení povrchu bylo provedeno buď nožem, nebo pořízem s ostřím postaveným kolmo tak, aby bylo dřevo odstraňováno škrábáním. Takto zpracované lžíce se nechaly proschnout naskládány do hraniček někde v teple. Po vysušení byl výrobek ohlazen škrábáním hranou úlomku tabulového skla. Nakonec se mohla rukojeť lžíce ozdobit nějakým ornamentem vyrytým dlátem. Povrchová úprava se prováděla buď zakuřováním v peci, nebo se lžíce napustily teplým sádlem, či rostlinným olejem.
Lžíce se však nevyráběly jen z tvrdého dřeva, lžičky pro děti, nebo naběračky na smetanu se dělávaly také ze dřeva lipového, které je nejsnáze opracovatelné a to i vyschlé, a proto jej budeme používat i my v našich dílně.

Manufacturing process
Utensil is used primarily maple or beech wood, which is processed raw. After drying, it would be far too hard and difficult to be worked them. Moderate beech trunks and thick branches after extraction were transported to the manufacturer's homestead. There were then cut into blocks corresponding to the length of the manufactured equipment, with several centimeter margin. These were then centrally chipped into pieces called. Štípa ax and mace, or wedges. Furthermore, the chisel and mallet, stinging, or large knife into smaller parts. Thus prepared nicked was then stripped and ax-hewn into the rough shape of a spoon.
Whorl, 2nd half of the 1st millennium. BC. Kr.
The Old Man, stool woodworking
1 - muzzle, Tlamka; 2 - seat board; 3 - foot treadle
Then was compared drawknife in stool called bastard-file. They were then saw, cut the estimated length of the head tablespoons of two transverse oblique notches to a depth corresponding to the thickness of the handle and the excess material is odštípnul. Thus arose the rough shape of a spoon. It again fixated in the Old Man and treated with cost convention. Completing a round head and spoon shaped handle is carried out with a pocket knife. The pit head spoon was selected scraper, also called loop. Finishing and smoothing surface was done with either a knife or blade drawknife with built vertically so that the timber was removed by scraping. Thus treated were allowed to dry spoon stacked into Hraničky somewhere warm. After drying, the product was polished scraping edge fragment of sheet glass. Eventually she could handle spoon adorn some ornament engraved with a chisel. Finishing was carried out either zakuřováním in the oven, or impregnated with spoon warm lard or vegetable oil.
Spoons, however, did not produce a hardwood spoons for children or cream scoops with DeLaval take linden wood, which is most easily workable and even dry, and therefore we will use as we in our workshop.
