Friday 27th May – This week I have been working on making my adaptation of Brian Bogg’s Shaving Horse.
Mine being make from 3/4″ plywood and designed as a knock-down unit for easy transport.
The legs can easily be removed and stowed inside the hollow box section with the riser post. The lower jaw is attached to the ratchet riser with draw bolts enabling it to be removed for transport. The treadle arms also swing up along side the box section for compact unit. The foot pegs were turned from screw in bed legs.
