Shaving horse for the workbench – shaving leg
then there are no excuse…

A post on my day no 2000 on LJ. ;-)

This is a shaving leg for the workbench, easy and cheap to build and will make working with drawknife so much more easy since you will have both hands free.

Blogs with the build can be found here: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/59010


Pictures:
1. Jaws holding the wood.
2. The leg in use.
3. Cheap standard materials.
4. Threaded rod, nuts and washers.
5. Leather pads.
6. It’s not all woodworking…

Hope it can be to some inspiration perhaps some shaving legs.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Ahh, Mads you are having way too much fun.
Nice shaving pony there and the pizza doesn’t look too bad either. Is that fresh basil on top?

Very nice. I’ve been considering building something similar as I don’t know where I would store a full size horse.

Great solution to an awkward issue Mads. I hope you get lots of pleasure from using it.

BTW – I note your Iles chisels on the bench top,Ii bought another one today from Workshop Heaven, a 15mm to complete the package.

That’s very clever, I want to make one myself now. Hard to find room for a full shaving horse in my small shop.

LOVE IT! I have been wanting to build a shave horse for a while for bow making, but now I want to build this. Great job.

That is a great idea. I’m going to add it to my list. My shop is too small for a full size version and tis would work nicely.

Our local woodworking club wants to have some chair making classes. I’ve said not until we have a set of shaving horses. That’s quite a big project to build a dozen of them and then find a place to store them. This just might be the solution we are looking for. Thanks!

Very clever and excellent use of on-hand materials. Simple but effective design. Nice job and I’m sure you’ll find it extremely useful.
