One wild shaving horse
or MaFe’s version of the beast at least…
This post is pictures from my blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/24837
For years I have been looking at this fascinating work horse, at the internet and at museums all over Denmark and on travels, it seems to shop up all over and have a long history, so finally this summer I took the time and the energy to build one.
1. A man and his horse.
2. The build from some old roof rafters, and all by vintage hand tools.
4. Saw bench function.
5. Workbench functions.
6. The drawing I made for inspiration to the build.
As you can see on the drawing I plan for a lathe on the bench also, so it is still ready for improvements.
The horse is a Wonderboy, a pleasure to work at, and I am sure he will be a favorite place for many wonderful hours in my little garden.
Hope it can bring some inspiration, who knows perhaps even inspire for wild horses.
