The shaving horse is basically a very fast, foot operated vise that is utilized by a broad range of craftsman including wood turners, bodgers, coopers, chair makers, shingle makers and many other traditional trades. With traditional woodworking rapidly gaining popularity, people are using drawknives and spoke shaves to make chairs, paddles, snowshoes, splint basket parts, walking sticks, and many other great items. The shaving horse is essential when using a drawknife or spokeshave to shape wood into finished parts for your project. Using provided lumber, you will build your own shave horse.
