shaving horse pt 2

Just an update: this is what I ended up with doing for my shaving horse re-build, there is hardly anything left of the original.

P1010281

you can see all that I re-used is the head and lever. it’s also a little bit longer than the old one… we’ll see if that’s useful or if it’ll need to be shortened. Nearly 30 years on the old one isn’t exactly a short span for a wooden tool that gets left outside. If this one lasts as long I’ll never need another.

  1. -just an admirer of woodworking, craftsmanship, practicality and useful things handmade. Came here from also admiring your comment on that ridiculous article in “Why Handmade Matters”. Cheers from the textile world.
