  1. Slightly different woven board

    This board has a background and accent stripe of New Guinea Rosewood with the main weave of Tasmanian Blackwood and the other accent is Purpleheart. I hope the pics are big enough and there is a bit more detail.
  2. Ye old shaving horse

    Just a quick shot of my new shaving horse.. my last one spent to many winters in the snow and needed to be replaced.. I don't have room inside for this one either, but did put (4) coats of spar urethane on it to help with the weather.. spend lots of time on the seat of this… Just can't beat the...
  3. Shaving Horse

    I finally took the time to build a nice shaving horse for myself, and I hope that it will come in handy on a set of Windsor chairs that I am planning. While building my garden bench contest entry, I had finally had enough wrestling with my circa 1996 homemade horse. Although it worked fairly...
  4. Miniature Shaving Horse made from Walnut

    I made this miniature shaving horse from walnut with hand tools and used no metal fasteners to assemble it. The butterfly splice is beech wood. It measures about 11 inches long and 5 1/2 inches tall. It does work and it was lots of fun to make.
  5. Shaving horse and sawbench

    One of my first hand-tool projects was a Christopher Schwarz-designed sawbench. After all, it's hard to make anything if a simple sawcut is a challenge! The bench on the left is a shaving horse (a Roy Underhil "bodger's bench" to be exact. I originally built the shaving horse as a way to debark...
  6. "The Schweighofer" updated

    My Shaving Horse is made of scrap wood that has been laying around the shop. The boards are pine (the seat is split down the middle) I made the Dumbhead and Legs out of elm and the dovetail butterfly keys (to fix the split) are black walnut. I used oak pins with walnut wedges to hold it all...
  7. Shaving Horse

    Finally got around to building a shaving horse. This design is based closely off a PW article with some slight modifications. It works amazingly well with my drawknife and spokeshave.
  8. Shaving Horse from a Tree

    This is a project that I have wanted to try for several years. The opportunity came when an oak tree in front of my home needed to be removed. I saved two 8 foot logs and my friend milled them into planks. I used one of the planks and one of the off cuts from the outside to make this shaving...
  9. Guitar Stand

    well here is my new guitar stand, its made of cherry and walnut with just a splash of maple. I carved this by hand, in pic 2 you can see the ankle, which I carved from one piece. I made 4 of them before I got one I liked. the angle had to be just right to support the guitar neck and belly...
  10. New bench for people passing my shop (post)

    New bench for people passing my shop we can all need a little care. For many years now, I have had a bench in front of my workshop, this for people to be able to take a rest, hold hands with their love, talk with friends, or simply to sit down and think about life, pull the plug in the middle...
  11. Bowl horse and Spoon mule

    I made this about a year ago. It was inspired by David Fisher's bowl horse design combined with the Michigan spoon mule. David Fisher's plan is on his site. A similar or maybe the same spoon mule plan is now in the latest FWW Tool and Shops issue. I made mine from 2×10 fir from the local big...

    Spoon mule for shaving horse & workbench As promised; a spoon mule to mount on the MaFeSan shaving horse, or on your workbench, in the tail vice. For those who are not familiar with a spoon mule, it's a device to hold the spoon or other small objects, while you work on them. You use your legs...
  14. Swiss style shaving horse

    I've always wanted a shaving horse, but until recently didn't get around to making one. I'm very pleased with the result - and so are my kids. At this stage, they are using it far more than I am and I could not be happier :D Made with ply, a bunch of scraps from around my shop, and some 2"x4"s...
  15. Shaving Horse

    A friend of mine is starting to make rustic furniture and using period tools. Thought he might like to have one of these.
  16. Chair Makers Shaving Horse

    Hi this is a redo of a shaving horse I built in the early 80's. I customized it so I could use it to make Windsor chair spindles (for the backs of chairs). I purchased some rawhide and laminated it to a grooved platform and then made a cylindrical top member that is also laminated with...
  17. Shaving Horse

    I hate hand tools, I hate hand tools, I hate hand tools. Well, particularly hand planes. But I thoroughly enjoy building things like this shaving horse. This is actually a prototype for a new class I'm starting "Build a Shaving Horse". A VERY original title don't ya think? Don't know how it will...
  18. Shaving Horse

    Thanks Lew, for the inspiration. I made this one out of Cedar, Live Oak and Black Oak. It was a hot item at the Columbia State Historic Park "Harvest Festifall" this past weekend where it was the first item to sell. It was an 1800's theme where everyone dresses up like the old days and they put...
  19. Shaving Horse

    I made this shaving horse after becoming interested in doing some green woodworking. The main body is constructed of dimensional lumber (pine and douglas fir). The seat was made from a 2" thick piece of poplar. Made the pivoting pin from some 1/2" steel rod from Home Depot and turned the handle...
