Shaving Horse

Description

A shaving horse is a work bench that you sit on, which also held whatever piece of wood you are working on in place. The user would sit down across from the piece of wood, then push the foot pedal to move the dumbhead down. The shaving horse outside the tool house is pictured, but there is another shaving horse to the right inside the tool house.
