Had to research what Sloyd education was.
Do you teach your school kids woodworking?

Yes. It is compulsery from grade 3-9. 70 minutes a week. It’ s called craft in the sylabus. 50 % textiles and soft materials and 50% wood/metal and other hard materials.
Page 255-261 in the national syllabus for the compulsery school. I taught design technology in a two international schools many years ago.
I work in a small school 200 students. Got a good workshop, with 16 workstations/workbenches. (Wich is max groupsize) Two lathes, pillardrill, bandsander, discsander, thickener/shaper, bandsaw, 2 hegnersaws, industrial shopvac. MIG weld, propaneburner, anvil... Many tools are old but in good shape and updated to legal standard for use with students under supervision.

Very nice shave horse, Anders! I made one earlier this year.... but ... mine doesn't have a horse shoe :roll:

That curriculum is to be applauded! Looks like some thought and genuine concern for growth & well-being prevailed! Wish I could say the same for OURS.

good luck,
Don

I made another shaving horse in the style I understand is more popular in the US. Friends of mine says it´s called the Swiss/Austrian type, but I that maybe isn´t right.
The horse is made of the cheapest material. Left over pine boards I got from a carpenter that has his kid in one of my classes. I resawed and glued them together to get a sturdy seat. now I just need to find or make a small draw knife. Ive got two. One is made by my grandfather and in a size that fit childrens hands. The other is a stubai and way to long and heavy to handle for them.
Thanks for watching.
