  1. A (very) poor man's temporary "sawhorse workbench"

    One never seems to have enough tools to build the tools that build the tools etc… The workbench is no exception. Infact not having one is a pain in the behind. So far I've done most of my work on rickety constructions. But I've just finished a small afternoon project that makes building a...
  2. 3 Leg Foldable Sawhorse

    3 Leg Foldable Sawhorse I had a pair of 4 leg very sturdy and strong folding hinges sawhorses 120cm long made of 2X4 with a bottom shelf but even though they serve me well, they were very heavy and big to carry around either to a job site or in my Alpha hatchback saloon car. So I decided to...
  3. Handy Sawhorse

    I built this sawhorse from some plans in a wood magazine years ago. I like it so well that I bought all the materials and hardware to build another one. It is adjustable and the legs are removable and stored in the center box and can be hung on the wall. Mitch
  4. Classic trestles for my brothers surfboards (saw horses) post

    Classic trestles for my brothers surfboards My dear brothers work trestles that he use for his for cleaning and preparing his kite surfboards, were worn out and he asked me at a dinner party, if I could make him some new, four to be precise, he had two before, but his son also started kite...
  5. Mortise & Tenon Sawhorse | Skill Builder Project

    In this video I link up with Woodcraft finally build a sturdy sawhorse. Something I have been looking to do for a long long time. I wanted to work on traditional woodworking skills, so I used through mortise and tenon joinery for the whole build. I incorporate some curves and use some simple...
  6. My version of the "ShopDog"

    After seeing so many great folding sawhorse designs on this forum I had to have a go at my own version of the ShopDog. Thanks to all the help and inspiration from the forum.
  7. Great Folding Sawhorses

    Check out the HOW TO VIDEO here: http://woodworkingtrip.blogspot.com/2010/07/diy-folding-sawhorses-version-20.html I have been wanting some compact sawhorses and I was tired of seeing everyone break their plasitc ones along with breaking a few of theirs myself. So I went looking around the...
  8. Krenov Sawhorses

    I was getting sick of my black plastic sawhorses and had a pile of scrap wood laying around. Beats throwing the cut off pieces from previous projects into the fire pit. It is a standard krenov style sawhorse, but I added a few curves to lighten up the shape a bit. Everyone I have shown these to...
  9. Japanese Sawhorses

    My first real woodworking project. I needed a pair of sawhorses that I can use around the shop, but I wanted to build something that would give me some practice in joinery and hand tool skills. I saw NikBrown's post here ... and decided to give it a shot. I made tons of mistakes on the first...
  10. Shopmade Adjustable Sawhorses

    Hey guys, I made these adjustable sawhorses kind of as a project within a project. I have been making a dining room table for my wife's parents out of cherry and realized that I just need one more horizontal surface to place things on. I am using my outfeed table, table saw, and bench, so there...
  11. Japanese Sawhorses

    I built these sawhorses for a Japanese woodworking class, the design is from an article by Jay Van-Arsdale, the point was to hand cut all the joinery using Japanese woodworking techniques. the feet are attached with through pinned mortise and tenon joints. most of the wood is "reclaimed"...
  12. Why did I wait so long? Sawhorses

    Nothin' earth shatterin'. Just a couple of hacked together folding sawhorses out of leftover "tubafores", some found-on-road ratchet straps, hardware store bolts, and two buckles from the fabric store. Found out the original design was better than my failed revisions…. hence the notches in the...
  13. Unique sawhorses

    Here is my favorite sawhorse design to date. I know what you are thinking: "That's not a sawhorse"! No, really, it is (and then some). There are several features you won't find ordinarily. The main one is that its height is adjustable from 25" to 42" tall. You can adjust it to any exact...
  14. Two small saw horses (japanese inspired)

    This evening I finished my two small (japanese inspired) saw horses. Made from construction lumber (pine) and finished with boiled linseed oil. They are in now way perfect. But I intend to use them. Putting them on the ground. Banging on them and probably cut into them by mistake with a saw or...
  15. Kids Table and Chairs

    Well here is the kid's table and chairs that I made for our friends little girls. When DW mentioned to the mother 2 weeks ago that I was making it she asked the Mother did she want any specific size or anything in particular. She said no . . . not at all. Just something for the girls and make...
  16. Roundwood Sawhorse

    Another primitive project made with nothing but handtools. An axe, hatchet, handsaw, chisel, mallet, a chalkline and a level - maybe even a pencil too. I have a longish description of how I made these which I will likely post later as a blog. The techniques are a combination of log building and...
  17. Simple Sawhorse

    These are pictures of some sawhorses that I built last summer. They are a derivation of a Roy Underhill sawhorse that I built many years ago. Those old horses were made of 1X3 pine, a hand saw and chisel, and a few screws and glue. They are a great sawhorse, but I wanted a little more...
  18. Another set of "ShopDogs"

    I decided I needed another set of saw horses for my shop, since my original set are now outside holding up a small load of ceder lap siding that I'll get around to installing later this fall. Having researched a lot of sawhorses, I came upon several LBJ guys who had built the Canexicans...
  19. Chuck Box (Camp Kitchen)

    I saw this project on LJs a short while ago and knew that I had to build one. So here it is, my version of the Blue Sky Kitchen Grubby One. I also made the leaf accessory and a couple of special extras. I really liked this design that seems to that give you endless possibilities for storing...
  20. Collapsible Table for the Shopdog Sawhorses

    When I saw the folding sawhorses Canexican designed I knew they would be a great help for me. You see I sold all my woodworking equipment 11 years ago when we "hit the road" in our RV. Last year I got the itch to have a shop again so I bought a 24' enclosed cargo trailer and started equipping...
