Building Shave Horses

A local community group commissioned me to produce a couple of shave horses for them to use in their woodland.

I completed them in 3 days in early summer from a mixture of Sweet Chestnut, Ash and Hazel I had cut in the Winter. The finished horses were then flooded with linseed oil to seal them against moisture.
