For those of you who do not know what a Shavehorse is I have included a photo and some links below on how to build them or buy one if you have some (LOTS) of spare cash.
So here it is my table top shavehorse. Minus the horse.
Build on on the cheap!
Step 1: Parts
So I got a 36" long 5/16ths threaded rod.
Two nuts threaded for 5/16ths
Two washers that fit the nuts.
I already had two large washers that i thought would fit under the mower knobs.
As for the lumber. I had some old 2X4 size lumber from a pallet. It is some sort of hardwood. The base is pine 1"X12" I cut it to about 15".
2 Mower knobs
1 threaded rod
Hard wood top piece
Wide pine base
A saw- I used a hand saw but table or band saw would work
