Ultimate Sawhorse/Workbench Base Product

06-19-2013 08:15 AM by CentipedeSawhorse | 25 comments »

I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where I designed power tool attachments and accessories. Having the time to pursue projects that delight me instead of the owner of this company, I have decided to try to bring one of my best ideas yet to market. I would love to have your feedback on both the product and my approach to funding the project. I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where ...

Chainsaw Sawhorse #1: Using a custom sawhorse for cutting my green logs.

08-19-2009 04:48 AM by Innovator | 8 comments »

I have always cut my green logs either on the ground or on top of other logs. Well a few weeks ago I was cutting a log and it decided it wanted to dance a little bit. Now I don’t care if a log dances or not I just don’t want it to move while I have a moving 20” chainsaw in it. This got me thinking there has to be a way to hold the work safely for cutting. So I took to the internet looking for sawhorses for chainsaws. I did find a few commercial units but they were all listed in E...

DIY Folding Sawhorses Video- A How-to

12-23-2010 01:39 AM by Sailor | 5 comments »

Here are some folding sawhorses that I built a few months back and added them as a project. I had recorded the building process but was unable to get the files off of my camera to edit them due to a lost software, but I bought a new software so here is the video! You can find some more information like the cutting layout, dimensions, hardware and some more detailed photos on my blog, The Woodworking Trip. I really like these sawhorses and I have built myself two sets. One that I use...

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #3: Sawhorse the first - the oops version.

08-02-2010 02:45 AM by AnnaEA | 4 comments »

Headed down stairs after dinner this evening to start building my sawhorses. I started by sorting out the lumber and selecting which faces I wanted on top of the I-beams. Oops the first – I need to finish the cuts on two of the legs – they should be 30” and they measure 36” – I forgot to cut trim the ends. Well, I need more practice handsawing anyways. With the very bored help of my daughter, I built the I-beams. Next up, nailing on the legs. I ...

Project #1: Sawhorses #1: Day 2 Update

09-29-2010 03:07 AM by JamieH | 3 comments »

Well, I began day two of building a pair of sawhorses from the Matthew Teague “Projects for your Shop” book. I posted day 1’s progress under the Woodworking Skill Share forum yesterday. Just realized this might be better in blog form. I got the legs cut to length with proper angles cut for top assembly, assembled the top, and screwed the legs in before I ran out of daylight. I still have end braces, stretchers, and a shelf to add. I still am having wood screw joinery issu...

Sawhorse

09-19-2010 01:58 PM by EMVarona | 2 comments »

When ideas come to mind, I find it imperative that I should try to work it out. The least I can do is to make a sketch or visualization of what that idea is all about, lest it goes to waste. The lowly saw horse is an example. There are many versions, from simple to complex. Some are easy to build the others require more advance skills. My version I would think is fairly easy. http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/sets/72157624855604149/detail/ The illustrations were done with “Wing...

Workbench Build #4: Almost the whole top

04-13-2014 05:34 AM by Mark Kornell | 1 comment »

Managed to get all four sections of the top glued up. A bit laborious, but pretty straightforward. Decided to take a suggestion and use some jatoba for contrast. The plan was to glue up 4 sections of boards. Then I’d flatten each section before gluing the sections together. The rationale was that it would be easier to flatten each section using the powered jointer and planer than it would be the entire top using hand planes. There were two problems with this approach, both of whic...

The Non-Electric Chair #7: The Blue Shed

09-15-2008 09:39 PM by lethentymill | 1 comment »

In some ways I would be proud to have “Bodger” on my CV. The gentlemen who made chair spindles in the beech woods in and around Buckinghamshire when Charles Dickens was writing were called Bodgers. It’s hard to see where the connection with “botching a job” comes from but there probably isn’t one, apart from the fact that they come from the same, older, root. Bodgers were not “botchers” or “butchers” or “cowboys” even, they were skilled woodsmen who cleaved beech wood and then turned the...

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #4: Sawhorse the second - the 'aaaahhh' version.

08-03-2010 01:30 AM by AnnaEA | 1 comment »

I finished my sawhorses this afternoon—I have to say that having a sawhorse to use made building the second sawhorse much easier. It was also educational. I learned not to nail the sawhorse to the floor, and that the stringers should be nailed on the outside so that when you put your foot up on them to saw something they stay attached to the sawhorse and don’t pop off. This one was nice – I was in the zone. It went together like a dream, in very close to the titular...
