Thanks for your terrific blog! I love the anatomy diagrams. Scout is handsome and the dog is cute, too; not to mention the lovely family. So much good info, presented beautifully.

To Make a Single Ox Yoke, Part 7
With Harry the Dog's help....
I refined the patterns and reapplied them to the rough cut yoke.
The inside dimensions are the most important. The yoke has to fit the ox.
It is still very heavy, and streamlining on the outside will lighten it up.
A chainsaw has its limits.
When I start correcting my own mistakes I know it's time to move on to a more precise tool.
Here I am breaking the edge on the withers side of the yoke.
The yoke is beginning to take shape.
Next....I'll see if it sits square on Scout the Ox.
