SHAVING HORSES and LAP SHAVES and other WOODLAND VICES by respected craftsman Sean Hellman.
Sean brings us this fabulous book, full of plans and techniques for the greenwoodworker
This is what the back cover says:
This is a practical, instructive book with plans, diagrams, and clear working guidance for making shaving horses . Shaving Horses are functional, wooden clamping devices. The woodworker sits astride them whilst crafting a piece of wood. Similarly, Lap Shaves and other woodland vices are explained, from sourcing suitable timber in the woodland, to construction and how-to -use.
The heritage of our material world, through countless civilizations and societies, has been shaped in part by unknown, skilled woodland workers who crafted upon these necessary devices. In these times that demand each of us rethink our working sustainability practices at all levels, Shaving Horses, Lap Shaves and other Woodland Vices inspires as well as instructs how the woodworker can enjoy, develop, and increasingly participate in the resurgent craft movement.
