I’m trying to make a shave horse that was in the American Woodworker magazine in 2008. It has angled back legs that go out 15 degrees and back 15 degrees. Some cuts can be made on the compound miter saw, and some have to be made with a hand saw. Then some parts are discarded. Some parts are glued to the opposite side of where the cut was made.

OK, I made the cuts. The parts that I thought were right, turned out to be wrong. The parts that I thought were wrong, turned out to be right. Now I’m trying to continue by mocking up and clamping before making cuts.

The weekend was long and confusing!
