This project was made thanks to the Build a better shavehorse posts on Tim Manney's Blog
I am addicted to chairs, and there are a few chair-makers blogs that I stalk I mean, follow. I really want to give Windsor chairs a go but am slow getting that going. Making this shavehorse is kind of a kick in the pants to pony up (couldn’t resist) and make one!
I have the plans for Brian Boggs shavehorse and Peter Galbert’s “smarthead horse” but those are a little too involved to try- especially if I make some Windsor chairs and decide I like another style better. This bad boy is thrown together with dimensional lumber- just what the doctor ordered.
I thought about making a short blog about the build, but it wouldn’t do it justice. Just go over to Tim’s blog and all the info on how to build one is there. Now I just need a darn drawknife and some green oak…
