    Hey Ken, are you done yet?

    I wish you the best of luck with your chair adventure.

    I just want to say that I really like that rustic shaving horse you have there. If it could talk I wonder what it would say.

    Thanks Andrew and welcome to the family here.

    I made it several years ago, and it looks ancient because it lives outside. As to what it would say - my guess is "neigh"

    Nah, the only reason I waited was because I was working up the courage to start. I could have split it right away. That being said, it does split really nicely now in the cold. Because the wood is frozen - we're having highs in the 20s, it is a bit hard getting the wedge seated in the intact log. After that, it's pretty easy, and the froe works really great. I found a really old froe at a garage sale, and I like it much better than the bigger modern one I bought before it, which will soon go up for sale.
