Hi,

Can anyone post a picture here of a traditional twybill as used to make sheep hurdles and cleftwood gates typically as described and illustrated in Richard Tabor's book - Traditional Woodland Crafts.

Just enter Twybil into Google images, and you'll get plenty of choice...

I was going to post an image but it's bigger than 256kB, and I can't be bothered to reduce its size...
