Over the years we have gone through a lot of garden tools. Often handles broke, to be replaced ‘sometime’. This past week I made a Shave Horse – a project I have wanted to do for years but never got around to. The actual construction turned out to be fairly simple and it is a wonderful old-time tool, allowing wood to be shaped using two hands by clamping the wood with a foot peddle and using a draw knife. So now my old garden tools are getting new, and admittedly, somewhat crude maple handles. A satisfying 40 minute project.
