I made this shaving horse after becoming interested in doing some green woodworking. The main body is constructed of dimensional lumber (pine and douglas fir). The seat was made from a 2” thick piece of poplar. Made the pivoting pin from some 1/2” steel rod from Home Depot and turned the handle from a chunk of exotic hardwood (I believe it is rosewood). After using it for a bit I realized I needed a more secure spot to set my drawknife in since it kept getting knocked to the ground. So I made the drawknife holder from a piece of 2×4 with a rabbet cut in it and glued it to the horse. Pics 5 and 6 show it getting some use making some parts for the mulberry stool I made (another one of my projects.) I really like the three legged design which allows it to sit on my highly unlevel garage floor without rocking.
