my new shavehorse is finished.

Postby fish » Mon Jun 20, 2016 4:20 pm

I finished a new shavehorse today,the woods were sourced from local copse.
The bench is from Green oak,as is the table and its hinge,the legs are seasoned ash,clamp legs are sycamore all the pins are seasoned Chestnut.
The Planks were cut by steam power and all the rest done by hand with good old fashioned elbow grease and Sheffield steel (hence the blue stains from the tannin reaction to the steel tools).

Nice one.
If you put two small slots in the tops of the arms then the draw knife can sit in them.
