Newly published book by respected green woodworker Sean Hellman
Book of plans, and techniques for the green woodworker
This is what the back cover says:
This is a practical, instructive book with plans, diagrams, and clear working guidance for making shaving horses: functional, traditional, wooden clamping devices upon which the woodworker sits astride whilst crafting a pice of wood. Similarly, lap shaves and other wodland vices are explained, from sourcing suitable timber in the woodland, to construction and how-to -use.
The heritage of our material world, through countless civilisations and societies, has been shaped in part by these unknown, skilled workers who crafted upon these necessary devices. In these times that demand each of us rethink our working practices in terms of honouring sustainability 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.
