Shave Horse Anybody?

Bruce's Shave Horse

Bruce's Shave Horse

This post comes from Bruce, one of our store associates at Eagle America.

“Not being able to find a set of plans that satisfied me, I searched the internet woodworking forums, blogs and historical sites for shave horse designs. I boiled my choices down to six different versions but none of them flipped my switch.

Not wanting to spend a lot of money on this project, I searched around my shop and found just enough scrap to build my shave horse. Eventually, I decided to incorporate some of the design features I liked online with some of my own.

In the end, I came up with this very friendly shave horse which is very adjustable and allows me to maintain a nice height while pulling my draw knife through the material, regardless of the stock thickness. Not bad for a weekends work in the shop!

Now, my shave horse sits on display in the Eagle America Outlet library for all of our visitors to see. I guess I will have to build another one…”
