Hi ho,
First thank you for asking my oppinion, it makes me happy knowing I’m not all hopeless. Smiles.

I am not sure that I understand it completely, but if I do so; the giraffe is loaded with a pice of wood and the weight of the body holds it in place – brilliant thinking!

Using one of these shaving horses you usually turn the item you work on rapidly and on going, it is not a static tool – is this possible while sitting down?
How do you release? By lifting the Giraffe?
Why don’t you make a foldable leg in the back? It will make it useable in all situations and a stand alone tool.

I am impressed and love that you question the horse, this is where invention gets educated.
Kepp up the ideas.

Good hunting.
