I use the single leg dumbhead design common around here made by hte old timers. Simple to construct with just a couple of tools.And as a simple tool they can be modified on so many ways to suit your needs.Bore a few holes and they become a wedge type vise.For carving a saw mill slab this vise becomes real handy. I don't think any stick carver should be without one. Whittler

I spent about an hour Googling for shaving horse plans and kept coming back to the same two or three designs. I would like to build a shaving horse to peel walking sticks but the designs I have seen appear to be for shorter pieces of wood. Any stick carvers out there have a better design?

Captain Bandaid-the other "carving magazine" issue #6 had some plans for a portable stick carving jig.perhaps it can be adapted for peeling the bark as well as carving.if you can't get a hold of issue #6 let me know and i'll photocopy the relevant pages and either post or mail them to you.

Hi-Ho, yours is exactly what I was going to make but I was concerned that a 5-6 foot long stick might be difficult to peal. Do you have any problems using a drawknife with that horse?

Frank, I don't get the other carving magazine. Was their design different from the one Hi-Ho has?

Thanks for the help, folks!

Hey Captain_Bandaid, why not take a look at Richard Rombold's (also know as the Whizz) Picture trail galleries, he has a number of home made devices for holding sticks etc including his version of a shavehorse, I've posted his URL before but here it is again.

FYI - there are some sources for horses and portable holding devices in the current ChipChats magazine. I remember quite a few pictures too.

Captain Bandaid- the stick carving jig is a fixture which can be adapted to a work bench or a workmate and is diff. than a shaving horse.

old-gord i have posted some pictures in my oicturetrail album in the "in progress"album.

the author and desiger Fred Erbisch has provide some plans.

you can both have a look and see if it suit your purposes, if so you can print them out.
