About the Event
Once you have used one you need one! Join us for a weekend course to make your own steed. The course covers timber selection, tools required and techniques to make a swinging frame shave horse.
We will shape the base, make and fit legs, and select curved timber for the frame. We'll also use the pole lathe to turn the foot rest and top grip. At the end of the weekend, you will have your own shave horse to take away with you. Get ready to expand your woodworking horizons!
Workshop programme You'll arrive on site by 10am on each day, and be directed to our workshop. From there, one of our experienced trainers will lead you through the workshop. All wood and tools are provided. Each day finishes at 4pm. Camping is available.
