This Brian Boggs shavehorse was made last year from an article that was published in FWW few years back. The material is red Oak and was reclaimed from some old benches from my pizza place after remodeling. if you look close enough, you’ll see evidence of that. I just could not throw them away. I have done other projects from the same lumber for my shop that I’ll posting soon.
thanks for looking.

Nice horse and great use of reclaimed wood. You should burn the source description into the bottom so that it continues to carry the history as it makes its way through your family over time.

What a coincidence. I just finished mine this morning. I built it so I can easily shave my maloof style legs, I have 5 stools to make. I used it for 6 hours today and it and will be on it all day tomorrow. A padded seat it definitely a good idea. I got pretty bad baboon ass, I ll pickup some goldbond tomorrow morning.

You did a great job. I hope you get to use it soon.

As nice a shavehorse as I have seen in quite a while. And you can eat pizza on it too!
