Tree-saddle construction - Frecker's Saddlery
Saddles are the most important part of the saddle. This is what ensures the correct fitting of the saddle, the equilibrium of the saddle and the overall thickness of the saddle. All our saplings are made of yellow poplar and Baltic Sea birch. It is fibred and interwoven so that it is easily processed and retains the form of the tree.
The Kent uses a device to trim its rods to ensure a perfect angel. It is necessary to form both sides of the rods. They are rasped by Kent by hand to ensure that the balancing points are accurate. Once he has used his design to form the underside of the rods, he grinds a soft surface to ensure that there are no unevenness.
It is called the front of the saddle. The Kent forms a calf front. It is very important when it comes to design; it is really tapered so that the dolls are stacked up. Kent is working on the oesophagus in this image, which allows a gentle passage to the rods above the withers.
The next one is the cantele. In the canteen, Kent forms the bowl in which the horseman will sit. This is the back of the cantele. The Kent likes a clean and sleek look. It shows a complete batch of beams. Sticks and coat are made of yellow poplar.
Now, we look at a completed coat and a wooden log that is needed for it. When the tree is installed, two layers of PU are added to prevent moisture from entering the cane. That tree is prepared for cane. More than 10 lbs of timber are removed during the production of a tree.
When Kent frames our tree, he only uses raw skin from the Taurus. Taurus raw skin is thicker than cows, which gives its plants even more power. This is Kent putting the raw skin over his tree. It shows how thick the cop skin we use is. We then start cutting and forming the cane.
Kent sews the bugle in this one. He' s sewing the sticks. Later, the pins are placed in the coat, the rods and the cornea so that the raw hide can be dried near the tree, ensuring an even closer-fitting. While the raw skin is drying, the shoelaces have to be knocked on every day.
At the end we put on two layers of shellac to preserve the cane. It' made of the pine tree juice secreted by the laczbanze woman during shedding.
