Here is my partner Utah. He’s based on Brian Bogg’s plan from Fine Woodworking several years back. Utah is made of Black Locust and finished with Oil. It only takes about two days to build, and its a great shaving horse.

I spend a lot of time riding my shaving horse.
Black locust – I’m impressed!

My kingdom for a horse.

Beautiful horse. If you ride it a lot, like I do mine, you’ll want some cushioning on that seat.

Giddy up?.... ok sorry bout that, I tried but couldn’t resist. It looks like a nice one, good job. It will definitely come in handy making all those Windsor chairs.

What are the 4 holes that appear to be labeled, to the left of the pivot bolt for the ratcheting lever?

The holes are different diameters all set to 1” depth. They can be used as a gauge when making spindles.

Real nice. Are you going to be using this or is it ornamental?
