This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in round wood woodworking.

This BB is the building of a shaving horse.

A shaving horse (Sometimes called a shavehorse or shaving bench) is a device used to clamp wood tightly in place against a pulling force while working with a spokeshave or draw knife. It allows for quick release and reclamp as you work the greenwood.  It is somewhere between a vice and a bench.







A single-Log version

To get certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:

- Your chunks of wood that you are starting with
- Progress about halfway through, with the hand tools you have decided to use for this
- Final product
