This project was built for a friend of mine , who is starting to carve spoons & ladels. He owns Provident Organic
Farm near my hometown, where I volunteer every Tuesday.

The hourse is made w/ 6/4 White Oak, approx 5’-6”l x 10”w x18”h. I adapted various plans to come up w/ this design.

Edd,

Nice!! The foot peddle looks really comfortable to use and the head looks very solid.

Work of art or a tool? Quite a machine… well done. I remember you showing this at our club meeting. Why don’t you mount her for us? So, you decided to leave it without a finish?

...hmmm, and a spring picture in the middle of winter…

The horse looks great Ed, a solid build. I always have wanted one of those, but i don’t have room in my shop and it’s usually wet outdoors here.

I built one years ago and have used it almost every day. They are true wonders. This one looks just super and I’m sure your friend will be delighted. Grand job

Ed Glad that you got around to posting it. You need to be more active with your postings. Jack just showed me the mini clamps that you made.

Just giving you a hard time. As nice looking in a picture as it was in person.
