About the event

The Shavehorse is to chair making what the workbench is to casework. If you're looking to make some chairs you'll enjoy the work so much more riding this comfortable horse with a rock-solid grip.

This 5 day class will take you through to process of building and customizing a shavehorse to suit your needs as a green woodworker. Each student will choose a workbench on the first day of class and get to work turning the stack of prepared part blanks into a beautiful and functional tool. Along the way we'll use a mixture of basic power tools and hand tools to cut joinery and shape the parts. I'll show you how to safely complete each step using my tools as well as alternative methods so you can put them to use on future builds in your own shop. There will be time for demonstrations on sharpening hand planes and chisels as well as how to setup and sharpen a card scraper.

The size of this class is limited to 4 students.

Cost – Registration for the class is $250. Total cost for the class is $1120. The balance of $870 will be due December 10, 2018. If you need to cancel before December 10th your deposit will be refunded, less any bank fees. After December 10th there will be no refunds.
