Now in stock: Hans Karlsson straight paring & double hoop gouges
Tom Donahey has been building these elegant shave horses in North Carolina for 20 years. He developed this design in collaboration with chairmaker Brian Boggs. The shaving horse is one of the most useful tools for the traditional wood worker. The shave horse (or mule) combines features of an English bodgers shave horse and the Zug Stuhl type from Alpine Europe.
It acts as a quick releasing vise to hold work pieces when using hand tools.
Made from #1 yellow pine and solid birch plywood.
All hardware supplied, assembly required.
Shave horses are shipped UPS ground from North Carolina.
Mortise & Tenon magazine #3
