Building one of these saw benches designed by Chris Schwarz was one of my first woodworking projects, it is also one the most useful things I have ever made for the shop. It excels as a bench and step stool and I also found out it works pretty well for using a handsaw to dimension lumber. I only built one and always wished I had two.

For those who enjoy video click the image below to watch how I built it. Below that are some photos of the rough SYP being transformed into a masterpiece.

2X8 SYP from Home Depot and a random board I had lying around

The First is all the legs glued up showing the mortise. Second is after I cut the 10 degree angle on the legs.
