Shaving Horse - Brian Boggs - Fine Wood Working

schreiberbike
A shaving horse is designed for shaping long narrow pieces of wood. You sit on one end and pull a drawknife, spoke shave, or other tool toward you. As you pull with your hands, you push with your foot against a treadle. At the opposite end of the arm is a jaw which holds the work in place against a riser. Hence, the harder you pull against the work, the harder you hold it in place. ~~~~~ This model is based on an article in Fine Woodworking by Brian Boggs. It is notable for the use of a movable riser which allows for various workpiece sizes while keeping the position of the hands in the optimal position. It is very similar to the model made by Lie-Nielsen according to Boggs' design. The article on which this is based included dimensioned drawings and has differences from the Lie-Nielsen model which is more recent but based on undimensioned drawings and photos. The model includes teeth on the riser assembly which appear to be uselless. If the riser is raised to the lower teeth, it will be above the jaw. #Brian_Boggs #dumbhead #Fine_Wood_Working #Fine_Woodworking #Schnitzbank #shave_bench #shave_horse #shavehorse #shaving_bench #shaving_horse #shaving_mule #shingle_horse #wood_working #woodworking
