This week in the Clear Spring School woodshop, Joe Doster from Harrison is teaching a class on working with green wood. Today his students were learning to shape round spindles for stools or chairs using a shaving horse, draw knife and spoke shave. It is pleasant work. The aroma of the wood fills the air as shavings fall to your feet. But first there is a bit of rough hatchet work to be done. Scott wields the hatchet, Allen the drawknife in the photos at left.
