I had a class canceled this week for 2 days, giving me 3 hrs to do some workshop building. This shaving horse was built from scrap 2×4s, a few 4×4 oak posts and a broom handle. Lag bolts connect the legs, and the yoke & axle of the swing arm was whittled down to the correct size and fitted with pressure/friction.
I’ve never used/taught shaving horses before so this weekend and Monday will be spent in the throes of research.
I’ll be putting up a build post on this bad boy on my teaching site at some point. Keep yer ears open.
-- make it safe & keep the rubber side down.
