Snittepony -4- Shaving Pony

     Snittehesten var som sagt for lang i kroppen til at Piraten kunne bruge den. så vi flyttede hovedet tilbage mod sadlen. Nu er det så blevet til en snittepony. 

The shaving horse turned out to be too long in the body for the Pirate to use with ease. We shortened it by moving the head end closer to the saddle. It turned into a shaving pony.  
  • Her ses snitteponyen bagfra. Den har oven i købet fået en hale.
  • The shaving pony seen from the rear. It has even grown a tail.


     Så kunne piraten snitte løs. Øh bortset altså lige fra at vi mangler en båndkniv. Piraten svinger en malerpind i stedet, det virker næsten autentisk. 


Pirate whittling away - erm no it's not a shaving knife, its just that kind of stick used for stirring the paint, but it feels right. Next project is to find a shaving knife.
Svingarmen sidder endnu kun fast med en skruetrækker gennem hullerne.
Uglemor er ekspert i midlertidige løsninger, men den permanente er lige om hjørnet.
The swing arm pivots around a screwdriver. MotherOwl is as usual taking a shortcut to fun.
 A more permanent solution is forthcoming. 


     Uglemor måtte også prøve. Stor tilfredshed med ponyen. Efter billederne var taget, hentede Spirillen en pind og sin snittekniv og testede for alvor. Ponyen bestod med glans.


     MotherOwl just had to try as well. The pony was just fine. After this photo session, Marsupilami grabbed a knife and a branch and tested in earnest. The shaving pony passed with flying colours.


       Selv om der var tilfredshed hele vejen rundt, var ponyen en smule ustabil. Så Uglemor udnyttede det gode tørrevejr til at male to lidt mere solide lange brædder, der skal overtage rollen som krop. 

Even if all were satisfied, the pony was a bit wobbly. MotherOwl took the fine weather as an excellent excuse to paint two sturdier boards for a new body for the pony.
  • De to nye planker sammen med en stejlende snittepony. 
  • Two new boards freshly painted, and a prancing pony.

    Medens brædderne tørrede konsulterede Uglemor internettet. Selvfølgelig var der en idé. Lav en snitteknivsholder. Det var ret enkelt i en primitiv udgave. 

Instead of looking at the boards drying MotherOwl searched the internet for an idea - and one shoved up. A simple way to use a normal knife as a shaving knife - MotherOwl went for the simple version.
  • Snitteknivsholderen med Spirillens kniv. 
  • Carving knife to shaving knife in a second or to.
