A shave horse is a combination of a vice and a workbench, providing a rapid and sturdy clamping mechanism for shaping wood. Historically shave horses have been used in many applications such as chair making, spoon carving, and coopering.
Amy Pate of Pate Works teaches a class at our Brooklyn showroom in building a sturdy yet collapsible shave horse -- perfect for apartments and small shops. In response to demand from folks who can’t make it in person for the class, Pate is offering hardware and plans to enable other woodworkers to build their own knockdown shave horses.
The Knockdown Shave Horse is also the subject of Pate's Popular Woodworking Magazine article (February 2019 issue). The kit includes plans for the shave horse and the hardware Pate uses in the class.
When you are all done you will be ready to tackle spoon carving, chairmaking, and a host of other traditional crafts.
