The Veritas saddles accomodate 1-by material for the cross members. Veritas recommends 1X3’s, but 1X4’s worked better for my purpose. Veritas recommends using 8’ 1-by material for the base as well, and that will work fine if you just plan to lay the whole thing on the floor every time. But I wanted something that I can use on sawhorses. So I attached the Veritas saddles to 2X4s and used 1X4’s for the cross members. Storing 8’ long 2X4’s is a problem in a small shop, so I cut the two 8’ 2X4s in half and use 2’ long 1X4 material with holes bored for bolts to secure the two pieces together when I’m using it. (See the 4th photo.) Since all of the components are 4” stock, they stack together neatly. I wrap them with a velcro strap for storage. (See the 2nd photo.) It works great for me either on the floor or on sawhorses. Let me know if I haven’t explained something well enough.
