I built a Stumpy Nubs saw bench and it has been great! Make sawing a lot easier so I did more of it which led me to try and make a Three legged stool. Trying to shave taper tenons made me realize the value of a shave horse but no way could I squeeze one in to my “shop”.

All this led me to make a shave pony for the Stumpy Nubs saw bench. It’s held in place with a 1” dowel underneath and the 1-1/2” foot peg comes out so the pony can be removed.

Nice! Pretty sure I’m going to steal that idea at some point!

Great… I’ll be interested to see what kind of improvements you make.

Here are a couple more pictures.

This is awesome. I like it much more than what I am currently using.

Started the build, Bill. The main platform is two 6 foot long 4×4s sandwiching a 2×4 front leg. That got pegged together today. Tomorrow the splayed rear legs get attached if things go as planned. Then I’ll get into building the heads (one for shaving, and one for bowl work, I think). Came back to look at this and Jessyeigh's shave horse for inspiration.

Cool! There have been a couple of times I’ve wanted a full size horse. It works great for small stuff. Haven’t tried to do a bowl yet. Looking forward to seeing your project come together. BTW how’s the great Southwest treating you and your sweetie? Snow predicted for tonight in Detroit :-)

Pretty good, Bill. With the new roof going on yesterday, we’re done with the “must complete before winter” projects for the year, and my shop plans are almost ready for TPTB, so hopefully we’ll break ground on that yet before the year is out.

For the bowl work, I’m going to try and incorporate a head like David Fisher's but I don’t quite have all the details worked out in my brain yet. Big thing is a higher working platform and a different stop. But I think that means that the pivot for the head gets attached to the table or stop, so I can swap everything out when I switch to bowl work.

I think.
