Of course you're welcome to use my shavehorse design - I took mine from someone else! ;D

My shavehorse is based on a design by John Alexander. He gives some good instructions here. It has been a great tool for the last five or six years, but if I ever make another, I will probably use Brian Boggs' design. It's a bit more complicated, but it looks like it would work very well.
"There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey." -John Ruskin

Any idiot can write a woodworking blog. Here's mine.
