Over the winter and into the wet spring I built this shave horse. It was my intention to make canes, staffs, and someday when my skills are better to make chairs. I did for foraging out in the woods a week or so ago and found some good saplings and made walking sticks for my wife, grandson and myself for when we go hiking at the local state parks. I’ll have to take some pics of the sticks later.

Nice horse.
Now you beat me!
It seems like a winner, sure you will love it for years and years.
I have two big planks waiting in the stairway, for my health to be a little better, then I will be making a shaving horse also, I have designed it all ready in my sketchbook – I acually look really forward to this.

Nice horse Ted. Did you build it from a plan or is it your own design?

Good looking horse. Has it proved to be a valiant steed yet?

Hey, that’s a real special shaving horse. You really did a great job on it.
