I finally finished my shaving horse. This is basically a portable vise to hold a piece of wood while you shave it down with a draw knife. You sit on the rear portion, and activate the vise with your foot on the pedal, pushing it forward, which rotates the dumbhead down, trapping your wood blank. It's used to shave pegs or legs, or whatever you want. The main plank is heart pine, and the rest of the pieces are made from white oak and hickory. It's not totally finished as I still need to sand it and apply some oil and urethane finish, but it's close enough to call done.
