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.

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

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.
