I’ve been wanting to build a shave horse for a while now and with the purchase of a draw knife, a shave horse is now needed. I used an old oak pallet and a single tree. Go check it out.

This is on my list of to do’s. You have built a nice one. Great job Chuck. I like the re-purposing the old wood.

Ha, Dave I wouldn’t call it nice, but its down and dirty and gets the job done! I might build another this summer and make it so nice I don’t want to use :-)

Check out Brian Boggs. And Chuck yours is functional. It something my grandfather would have built. The originals were built from green wood and looked the same way.

There’s alot to be said for wrestling through the prototype process. Having built this one you are much more prepared to build the next one.

I did a Windsor chair making course 2003. Came back to work and made a shaving horse and only used it a couple of times after that. Such a cool tool though. Must get around to making one for home. Thanks for taking the time showing us what you’ve been up to.

Great tool. Very good results, given the circumstances.
