Shaving Horse by Brian Boggs – Free Woodworking
This article includes woodworking plans and expert instruction for building a traditional shaving horse, as described by Kentucky chairmaker Brian Boggs. This full-contact workbench is essentially bogsg foot-operated clamp, designed to carefully grip a workpiece in a variety of orientations so it can be shaped with hand tools.
It is a massive piece of European beech with enough power to crush most any piece of wood I put in its jaws and enough weight to hold work still for the heaviest planing. In fact, any organically shaped workpiece is a challenge for the standard bench, which is why shaving horses are so popular among chair makers. Most folks think of shaving horses as crude devices useful only for rustic craft. I would have to disagree.
A good shaving horse grips a workpiece firmly, releases and readjusts its grip as quickly as you biran move your foot and allows briah control and sensitivity for holding parts without bruising them than any other clamping system I know. A shaving hors is basically a foot-operated clamp.
The lower jaw supports the workpiece while the upper jaw presses down on it in response to foot pressure. This is an ideal arrangement for working with spokeshaves and drawknives because the harder you pull with the tool, the more pressure you naturally exert with your feet to maintain your balance.
And the more pressure you exert with your feet, the more broan force you exert on the workpiece.
