Antique Primitive Carpenter's Tool Bench/Shaving Horse
Antique Primitive Carpenter's Tool Bench/Shaving Horse, circa 1700s-1800s for this shaving horse (aka Schnitzel-bank), that's correct--18th or 19th century. It is in great condition considering age and use. It is the real deal! It has been well used and has some natural cracks in the wood, but is very sturdy. The worker would use a draw knife by sitting on the long open-end of the horse and clamping the wood stock in front of him with the foot operated lever. He would then shave away at the wood until it was shaped as desired. Before the common vice and power tools, this was the tool to have. This is all original as found...with the exception of an antique oil finish just to help preserve the wood. This Schnitze-bank Carpenter’s Tool Bench/Shaving Horse is a time-capsule! It would be a great addition to a lobby of a workshop or its showroom. Even in a rustic or mountain setting home as a stand alone piece of furniture. It of course would be the highlight of any space you decided to showcase it in.
