Post Buy a Shave Horse

Where can I buy a shave horse ?

Image

OWG have made a batch of shave horses to support their community based work with Headway UK and have decided to make these available to buy either as a kit of parts (£50+pp) or fully assembled (£275 ex woodland) for all to enjoy making greenwood items (spoons, chair legs, pegs, etc.)

A sliding seat is useful in making the shave horse adjustable for different people but also acts as a good device with which to clear wood shavings that will fall from the work piece.

When making octagonal tapered pegs for timber-framing its usful to cut a shallow groove in one or two faces of the barrel clamp to clasp the square peg ready for drawing it down into an octagon.

Cora Firth has now made 3 shave horses (gratefully funded by the CooP) which are a delight to behold and use. We can now hold peg making sessions in the cruck barn for aspiring green wood workers.

To purchase your own horse please contact Cora or OWG Trustees
