Lew just showed us his shaving horse.

This is one plan I've been looking at.

A whole bunch of them on Google.

Dick,

Here are two web sites that I used to make the shaving horse. I combined some features and dimensions from each.

http://www.bloodandsawdust.com/sca/horses.html

http://www.countryworkshops.org/Shaving%20Horse%20Plans.html

The blood and sawdust site is nice because the horse is designed to be disassembled fro transportation. The other site gives some dimensions for leg angles and other sizes.

Looking forward to seeing your finished horse. If there enough of these made- we could have shaving horse races! No winners but a lot of fun.

Shaving Horse was a Native American barber?

Here’s a set of plans that I have used.

American Woodworker, Issue #135 May 2008, has plans for a shaving horse that is inexpensive to make, and can be dismantled for moving, etc if needed, I built one loosely based on the plans (Just a couple of modifications), and am very pleased with it. It is quite versatile as for adjusting to thickness of wood, seat placement, etc.
