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 ours to be sturdy yet collapsible - perfect for apartment living. In this fast-paced 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.
