You don’t see’s these come up for sale but I am selling my Chevalet, I am down sizing and have never used this after I built it. If you look at my projects page you will see what it looks like . I made this out of solid Ash and if you look at the clamp area you can see it has never even been cut. Also In review if you look at the two company’s that offer these complete for sale they sell for an average price of about $1900.00 plus shipping.

Selling for $1275.00 plus shipping

That is a very fair price. Best of luck.

For those, who like me, had/have no idea what this is used for or how it is used; here is a video on Utube showing it being used. Takes more patience than I would have in 5 lifetimes. :) Great piece of work rusty.

Pardon my ignorance but how is this better than a scroll saw? I realize that the painstakingly slow procedure is supposed to produce finer end results but I am afraid I would forget what I was making before I finished making it! That is like cutting diamonds.

I only opened this thread to see what this “chevalet” device was, and what it does.
~ After looking, I have to say that the one offered here is a great piece of work!

~ And after checking out that youtube video link given, I have to add that watching that video was more tedious than using this device probably is. I skipped to a mid-point and gave it about 30 seconds to figure out what the guy was demonstrating.

GLWS!

Jack you asked how this is better than a scroll saw. Well with a scroll saw you have gaps when cutting that show when you put it back together, unless you are doing the double bevel cut method witch is a lot more troublesome. With this you get a true 90 degree cut as you can dial this in (one time set up like a table saw) Also with a scroll saw you can get carried away when cutting do to the speed, with the chevalet you can go faster or slower and creep up on the line to get exactly the area cut that you want. It can also cut things smaller than any Scrollsaw down to the head of a pin. If you do research on these tool you will find out how accurate and precise they are. They are a sleeper tool that not to many people know about, but once they do and use them they love them and find out how great they are. If you really want to know about them do a search on Lumberjocks and you will get all the info you need.

It looks like it would be more fun to build it than actually use it. Wood working with tweezers isn’t for me. That’s some real art work Paul

Thanks for posting and thanks for the video. I have always wondered what a chevalet was and how it is used. I see now how Shipwright gets those amazing boxes. I also see how it takes over a year to do one. This would increase the accuracy of the cuts greatly but I think there is a learning curve to master it.
