Seems like you would have to be very careful to avoid sawing into the support tops. Maybe put down a sacrificial sheet of thick insulating foam first?

Yes, you do want to be aware of where your blade is cutting if not using a sacrificial surface. When using any work support I typically use a sacrificial piece of wood when making a lot of cuts, be it a sheet of OSB or plywood. I usually use the cheapest material I have on hand to cut on for any application, whether using this setup or traditional saw horses. This work support doesn’t replace traditional saw horses when cutting longer pieces of lumber like rafters, joist, stair stringers, etc…..

Mostly I like to use this with a sheet of 3/4’ plywood for a quick, flat work surface on the job site. Generally it’s used for work assembly, and tool support.

That is a pop Up Display for a convention booth, backwall, etc. Used in the signage industry. However, this appears to be missing the locking arms which allows it to stand vertical. The velcro around the perimeter secures a dye sub stretch fabric print to the frame

Thanks r33tc0w. There are some hooks that are hard to see in the photo. There are also some decals indicating

It works well for what I use it for.

That indeed is the centipede. It does look like you have it upside down in the pic. I have a small one that I got at Lowes. It works pretty good for some things and supports a lot of weight. Mine came with some clamps and hold downs. Not bad for free! On second thought I think r33tc0w is correct. It looks a little different then mine. Same idea, different use.
