Shve Horse

Objects from this contributor

Shve horses have been around since the middle ages. They were used to make hurdles. They hold the sticks firmly so slats can be weaved around them. It's a multi purpose tool as it can also make pegs for thatching. Made from dimensions found in archives this shve horse was produced as none could be found locally.
