Just made this horse for my grandson who is 2 next birthday all timber home grown (thinking ahead) it is fully adjustable, hopefully still around when he is big enough, plan for him is to get him on Blue Peter when 8 making a Sussex trug, like his father did at that age, but refused to go TV. My own horse for comparison

Brilliant, training cannot start early enough. I find a spokeshave works better than a cloth wrapped drawknife :lol:

Thanks Sean, will start him off with a spoke shave, will be a slow job 4 years to six then the horse will fit with a few modifications. lets hope we last.

Sorry to ask, but doesn't the first refusal tell you something? This is supposed to be something to enjoy, not to bear the weight of misguided forebears.

My son only refused to go on Blue Peter, he used his skills to produce enough Trugs to sell, at £3 each to enable him to buy his own computer,next modle after ZX 81 there was no pressure on him at all. He still uses his hand to make a living.

Zed has a really good video about building a shaving horse on his channel:

It's quite long, but worth watching every minute.
