Hello my friends !, after finishing this work, I present here my project of a Shaving Horse.
It was built using only hand tools at all steps, and mostly using wood and recycled materials or leftovers from other projects..

The entire project was documented with four videos where I show each process, and in four entries here in my blog. The important thing for me is that the project tried to follow the steps of the growth and harvest of vegetables from my urban organic garden, at this stage of the year, and I was able to arrive at Christmas with the harvest that implies to finish the project and share it with you. That’s why the videos include several scenes of the garden. All this is the symbolic and practical representation of the concept of growth towards the final goal, and respect for the times that each thing must have.
I leave you here with the links to the four videos, and hope you will subscribe to my channel, and not lose the next ones.

All for now, Merry Christmas! , be very good, enjoy and see you next time ! Cheers.
