I don’t really have the materials right now and they take up a lot of space. So, I did this instead. Pretty happy with the results. I made several notches on the bottom of the foot lever to quick adjust the rope for different size work pieces.

Woodeater,

There is always a way:-). A good take on a traditional way to hold your work piece.

I made a prototype shavehorse several years ago, thinking if it worked ok I’d make a pretty one. I’m still using the prototype :-). Through shear luck it fits up against the back side of one of my benches so for the most part it is out of the way.

it is an easy, quick build, but then I’m not sure but your method might work just as well.

I think shaving a horse is cruel and unnecessary.
I also think Ken has a chisel problem way bigger then mine. :)

I know Aj2, pretty sad isn’t. :-). But sweetheart if I don’t buy this chisel I’ll never finish the box you wanted. BTW, I think she is on to me.

Ha, I’ve actually done pretty good at restraining myself for a couple years now. I keep most of mine in tool rolls.
Really shouldn’t talk too much I don’t want to get triggered. :)

Nice improvising there, and it does follow a traditional method of holding the work. Like I always say, if someone really WANTS to do some woodworking, they’ll FIND a way. Hell my first lathe was a home made job using a metal spring mounted to rafters for a ‘spring pole” action. Look like crap, but it DID work. Ya done good here!!!
