I hate hand tools, I hate hand tools, I hate hand tools. Well, particularly hand planes. But I thoroughly enjoy building things like this shaving horse. This is actually a prototype for a new class I’m starting “Build a Shaving Horse”. A VERY original title don’t ya think? Don’t know how it will go but I’ll find out in January.
The seat was just freehanded. Knocked most of the corners off with a belt sander and then took the ROS to it with 80 grit. I tilted it forward a bit(not called out in the plans). The other change I made was in using all 2x lumber.
If I ever have a need to use one of these, now I’ll have one. I did buy a new Spokeshave(my first one) to go with it. A WoodRiver. I like it.
All comments and criticisms welcome.
-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--
