Default Made a shaving horse.

Built this a while back, and never got around to posting it til now. Made this shaving horse form scrap 2x4 and 2x8. Want to try it out for making bows, and the way Im tearing through tomahawk handles it would be good for making those as well. Made the jaw of the vise from some hard pallet wood as I didnt think the pine would hold up as a contact part. May make a quick video of it in action when I get to it, I have a nice section of pearwood that will make a good hawk handle, and Im starting a couple bows for friends soon...here the link to the pics

Thumbs up Good Tools!

Is that sturdy enough for you? Looks like that is adjustable.
Having the right tools makes the work go so much easier.

In hindsight I wish I had designed it as a full saw horse style as opposed to a tripod. Its light in the front. But plenty sturdy enough for my use. Im hunting up some drawknives to try with it. Im sure Ill try forging a couple at some point

I did build it to be adjustable but I didnt drill holes yet as I want to try it with different stock sizes to see where I would want the holes to be
