Riving a quarter bolt into blanks

Once you have split a bolt into quarters, rive each piece into spindle blanks. Outline the blanks on the end of the bolt and split it (above, left), then rive the blanks with a froe and a froe club made from an 18-inch length of dense hardwood, such as maple, hickory, dogwood or elm. Holding the froe in one hand with the blade offset from the outline, strike the blade with the club (above, right). Twist the froe back and forth, and drive it in deeper. Once the waste breaks off, repeat to make the remaining cuts.
