MaFeSan shaving horse
Folding travel version

This is a knock down beam shaving horse, it can also be used to hold bowls and other items, as well as a saw horse and a small working table.

The project started one day, where I took the trash down, from my apartment.
One of the neighbours had trashed some 2×4s and I took them to the shop, for absolutely no reason, except that I found it a shame, that it would be thrown out.
For some time the wood then stood there and looked at me, until I suddenly did not see the wood, but I saw a foldable shaving horse looking at me…, hmmm I must have gone Mad(s)!

These pictures are from the tow part blog: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/129823


Pictures:
1. The shaving horse.
2. The 2×4’s that just stood there…
3. Building the foldable legs.
4. Making a hold rabbet..
5. Bowl hold.
6. Workbench / saw horse set up.


A man on his horse.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, who knows, maybe some horse back riding…

Best thoughts,

MaFe

I think you should call it Marengo!

You have some great friends!

Nice work on that horse, Mads. That is such a simple and effective holding device! I see you have a cam clamp that clamps with the cam out at 90 degrees. Can you shoot me a sketch of how you made the cam—mine go all the way up and I want to make 4 more but not before I get the cam right.

Cheers, Jim

Looks great. If it holds the stock tight, and you don’t feel tortured after using it, it’s a great success.

Very cool. I was thinking of how i could do woodworking while out camping in my travel trailer. Sometimes we are out for 5 days or so , in the mountains or beach with no electricity. A knockdown nicholson would be impractical, but something like this would be possible, now you got me thinking.

If not Marengo, Rocinante, at least. ;-) It’s a very nice horse!

That’s really impressive! You could sell those on Amazon no problem!

Ar yes I forgot Rocinante, ... so now as it lives on in the modern world maybe Dave’s suggestion better reflects your current skills and technology.

Cool! I’ve been toying with making one of these but don’t have room to store it. This breakdown version definitely opens up some possibilities. Thanks.

Hah! Definitely not Rocinante. From Wikipedia:
Rocinante (Spanish pronunciation: [roθiˈnante]) is Don Quixote’s horse in the novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. In many ways, Rocinante is not only Don Quixote’s horse, but also his double: like Don Quixote, he is awkward, past his prime, and engaged in a task beyond his capacities.

Hi there,

I’m back from a wonderful week in Rome.
Plenty of horses there…

robscastle, Marengo is not a bad idea, I was my self thinking of; Sir Quixote of La Mancha’s horse, Rocinante. I think it suits me better. :-) Yes I have some wonderful friends, I’m a blessed man.
(Agree on the second comment – I was my self thinking of that name).
Jim, Thanks. I can see you have seen my answer to the questions.
therealSteveN, yeps, it’s a winner horse… Smiles.
lew, big thanks.
SMP, yes that will be really possible, it’s really small when taken down. Do it! :-D
Dave, we think alike, look what I wrote rob. Big smile here.
Jerry, these are give away horses. I love to give back to the world. Thank you.
SMP, :-O
Ivan, thank you, just hope it’s not wild…
swirt, sexy horse… thank you big time.
lazyman, make one and while you do it, read Don Quixote, then you will get to love the name. Smiles, thanks.
Best of my thoughts,
Mads

Mads, I agree. Rocinante is a marvelous steed, though perhaps not everyone understands.
