Space is an issue in my shop so I wanted a shave horse that preforms multiple tasks. This one can be used as a saw horse, ripping bench, planing bench or of course shave horse. The movable table also allows holding longer stock for various joinery. The carcass is made with 4×4s, 60” long by 20.5” tall. Back legs compound mitre 15 degrees both ways. Front leg 15 degrees. The table is 7 degree angle. 8” tall where the dumb head hit the table.
