Until I get around to building that shave horse …it’ll just have to do.

A paring ladder.

I got the idea from Peter Follansbee’s (Joiner’s Notes) blog.

Pretty slick, nice alternative to a shave horse.

Now I understand!

First time I have seen or read about one of these, now I have to decide if I am up to using my new
spokeshaves enough to require me to build one of these or a shavehorse.

I built it as a tool to help me build the shave horse. I’ve tried to shape the legs and the tenon on the legs by other means. But those methods didn’t work out too well. I may find other uses for it but, that’s the primary reason for building it. It seemed to be a quick, easy tool to build and that proved to be true.

Have your say...
