A shave horse is a combination of a vice and a workbench, providing a rapid and sturdy clamping mechanism for shaping wood. Historically shave horses have been used in many applications such as chair making, spoon carving, and coopering.
We’ve designed this knockdown version to be sturdy - perfect for apartment living. In this fast-paced 6 hour workshop, students will assemble their very own apartment-friendly collapsible shave horse, and leave with a little sawdust in their pockets.
Students will practice cut layout; miter- and hand-sawing; drilling, hardware installation and assembly. When you are all done you will be ready to tackle spoon carving, chairmaking, and a host of other traditional crafts. And you and your apartment will have a brand new shave horse you made yourself. Students will also be given spoon blank stock to help get them started on their first spoons.
Class is limited to 4 students.
Cost: $250 instruction fee + $90 materials fee
Duration: 6 hours
Location: Tools for Working Wood showroom, 112 26th Street, Brooklyn
Students will need to bring or purchase protective eye and ear wear, and sign liability waivers. All tools and materials included.
If you are interested in building the Knockdown Shave Horse but can't make it to the class, Pate is offering a kit with full plans and the shave horse hardware. See the link below.
Cancellation policy: You may cancel registration up to 8 days prior to the class for a full refund. Cancellations made just 36 hours prior to the class will be subject to full payment of the materials fees and a $50 cancellation penalty. Cancellations made with less than 36 hours advance notice and no-shows to the class will not qualify for any refunds.
