In a upcoming attempt at building a windsor chair, I built this shave horse to get some practice at drilling and reaming holes and tapering leg sockets. She isn’t pretty but it does the job. I got the plan from the lee valley catalog.

Thanks for the nice words guys, Charles, I used maple and oak for the legs, cherry for the plat form, maple for the side braces and a 2×10 spruce for the plank. The plan called for hardwood but this was the only 2×10 I had.

Have your say...
