  5. Timber frame Saw Horses

    I built these saw horses a few years ago as a practice timber framing project. I use them almost everyday in sawing boards, glue-up and even as a step ladder.

  8. Sturdy sawhorses for slab work

    The wife wanted a new dining table, and I wanted to be able to work indoor during the winter, so naturally the table is going to be a slab table larger than my small 2mx2m workshop :) So after having bought some wood, next step is to build a set of sturdy sawhorses to build off. The sawhorses...
  9. Saw Bench

  10. Saw Pony

    This is another post aimed at those of us who are just getting started. If you don't have a set of these you will need them at some point.

  11. "Krenov" Style Sawhorses from Scrap Wood

    Here's a couple of sawhorses I built out of some hickory that I had left over from a previous project. I don't really like working with Hickory much, and since I don't have much space to store wood, I had to find a use for it. They're built with all wedged mortise and tenon joints, using...
  12. Bents (Thanks Tom Fidgen)

    I have wanted a set of these ever since I read Made by Hand years ago. He mentioned a picture of Krenov's pair which I found and studied with care (there are by the way several pictures of his bents in The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking). Every where I looked, I soon saw these wonderful little tools...
