A friend and I made a pair of these combo spoon mule/shavehorse. We spent our spare time over a month to build these. The bench is the constant for both tools. You can remove the mule head by taking out a wooden key and then attaché the traditional shavehorse attatchments to the bench. The legs are round mortise and tenon and are easily removed for transport/storage. The pinchers for the mule are held in place by a wire and just hang in the mortise slot. You can hold the work piece in the mule will very little pressure applied by your feet. You place your feet on the inside of the pincher arms and push them outward. We purchased the bench bed and everything else is from limb or scrap pieces from our shop. It was fun project to do.
