Schnitzelbank.

Also called a "shaving horse."

You sit at the end of the long end and wedge a piece of wood under the club-like upright, keeping it tightly wedge by pushing forward on the pedal with your foot. Then you can use a drawknife or other wood-shaving tool with both hands. Quite ingenious, actually.

My grandfather had one. I wish I did.
