One wild shaving horse
A pony for the horse…
A good friend of me shoved me this wonderful old stitching pony one day in his house and when he saw my excitement, he decided it was a gift for me.
Thought it was interesting for others out there to see how a really old Danish (Scandinavian) version looked like, so here a few pictures.
I will use it on my shaving horse, so I can sit outside my work shop in the summer when I do leather work.
Here it is put in my workbench.
Notice the fine old leather hinge.
Beautifully shaped and jaws attached.
Threaded wood for tightening.
I love that, it’s fast and easy to use.
If you want to build a more quick and dirty version, I made this one some time back:
Hope this can be inspiring.
Thank you dear Flemming for this fine gift.
