In my workshop at the Red Sheds I use Traditional hand tools to produce wooden products such as hay rakes and bent wood pitch forks. The type of tools I use have been the Basis of wood working for millennia. My most used device is the shaving horse, a simple wooden vice that allows one to sit down on the job. A sharp draw knife is the main tool used to shape wooden components such as rake handles and heads.
I avoid the use of power tools to make the workshop a more pleasant place to be.
The green or only slightly seasoned wood I use has the advantage of being softer to work than seasoned wood as well as producing little dust. Linseed oil and bees wax are applied to wooden products for non-toxic and pleasant smelling finishes.
