I made these saw horses out of half inch baltic birch. They are very strong and very light. I used strap hinges at the top of the saw horse, with T nuts. At the bottom of the saw horse, I used electrical fixture chain with quarter inch carriage bolts, to secure the chains. They are very easy to store. THANKS GREG.

Those look really nice. Where might one obtain plans for such saw horses?

Greg, those folding saw horses look very good. I’ve got something similar, just out of 2×4 and 1×4. Though I’d suggest you find a way to set a 2×4 (sacrificial) on top of them. It helps a lot.

These are just what I’ve been looking for! I don’t need some to hold 1000 lbs, just a sheet of plywood or my larger projects. I might use this when I build my infeed and outfeed tables. They look great and fold flat, what’s not to like?
