Crafty Little Press have launched into the world of publishing, as of April 2017.
Our first title, Shaving Horses, Lap Shaves and other Woodland Vices is written by green woodworker Sean Hellman. It contains over 400 colour photographs and illustrations to demonstrate all stages and processes of making, using, and celebrating these traditional wood-braking devices. It contains plans and techniques that span instructions for beginners, to more complex designs, tool use and repair, and contemporary variations on traditional designs.
From a foreword written by Ben Law:
“Sean’s book is without doubt, the most comprehensive collection of designs and plans of shaving horses for the green woodworker, to be published…Sean’s writing is both evocative of his love of these shaving devices but honest to the reader as he openly relays his experience of using a particular design.”
