I need to make a shaving horse ..

This post means I’m starting to Think about making one and starting to collect information.  Tim Manney has a great one that I’ll be using as a go by.

    I’m wanting to build one too at some point, so I’ll stay tuned in!

    His design is enticing, I think it’s a useful workholding device especially for drawknife work, but I need to clear some shop space (and finish a bench) before I can add it to the list, as it does have a decent sized footprint

      I have a couple of ceiling hooks for holding bikes so my plan is to have a horse that I can take apart and store up high until I need it. That’s my plan at least.

    I used Tims design and it’s great. I wanted mine to be light, so the frame and legs are cypress. It’s plenty strong and very light.
