Always wanting to have a shaving horse, but no space, I made the combo. After using this shaving horse (a few times a year) it is easy to disassemble and store the three parts. Then putting the sitting board (shown installed in the last picture) over the bench and voila you have a long bench to sit on when working on the workbench. The shaving horse is about 8 feet long. As always it was done with hand tools only.

I love the wooden nuts and bolts. Can you talk about how you did those. Looks like you found a great solution to a space limitation.

Great looking bench, thanks for sharing. Looks like it would be very mobile when needed

The nuts and bolts are made with a threatbox and tap. There are no plans, I just build it “plan free” from a picture.
