...the seat and moves the handle back and forth, turning the veneer in whatever direction may be necessary"

What is the woodworker sitting astride?

Taken from a 1949 publication, the answer is animal related...

Gee, I'm here first and I can't think of the name of it. :cry:

But what I'm thinking of is probably wrong anyway. :oops:

This thing is for veneer so it is not a horse, shaving or otherwise...

Hey Ralph,

I couldn't remember the name, so I had to look it up. In the spirit of eschewing internet sources, I'll wait until our collective knowledge is exhausted before I chip in. However, the device I'm thinking of, is a sort of horse.:wink:
