  1. Sawhorses

    came across the plans for these horses in a book I have, they work great for finishing stuff outside. I can put the various cans tools n such on the bottom shelf and with a pc of plywood on top makes a nice portable finishing center.
  2. My first sawhorses.

    Some sawhorses. The first wood working project I have undertaken independently. I needed something simple and straight forward that I could build with the tools I have right now-a framing hammer, and an inexpensive handsaw. Enter the 14 Minute Sawhorses. When I saw these plans I swooned...
  3. 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...
  4. Timber Framing Sawhorses

    Made some solid timber framing sawhorses on the weekend. Made of 5" Cypress, mortise and tenon joints, draw-bored with 3/4" oak pegs. A little overkill in terms of bulk and strength but I had that cypress left over from another project. Going to start a small timber framing project soon so...
  5. Strong, Cheap, Stackable Sawhorses (April 2013)

    I already have 4 of these but there have been so many times where having one more would have been a big help. I made a how to article with pictures on my site for those who think I'm boring in my videos and a video for those who think pictures are boring :)
  6. Folding/Hanging Sawhorses

    I've been interested in making some folding sawhorses, and as I've lined my shop with french cleats, I also wanted to be able to hang them to get them out of the way when not in use. In reviewing Lumberjocks, I found that Canexican had something very close to what I had in mind. He called it...
  7. New Millenium Sawhorses

    To fulfil my needs around the house, I designed and built these useful sawhorses. Made from 3/4" X 12" X 96" MDF boards (could be plywood) that I had on hand, I designed them to be strong yet simple. Since my workshop is in the basement, they had to be efficient and storable. The measurements...
  8. 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...

  10. 1940's Saw pony express

    Hello friends, i hope all is well with you and yours! This was inspired by Roy Underhill's episode on the Woodwright's Shop. If you want a good old fashioned saw horse to use your classic Disston on, then I assure you this one is tough as nails in it's construction. I have been wanting saw...
  11. Woodsmith Super Sawhorses

    I needed new sturdy sawhorses after giving my store bought ones to my son-in-law. After reviewing several plans I chose Woodsmith's Super Sawhorse plan. This was fun to build. The project also gave me an opportunity to practice some joinery techniques with bridle joints, through tenons, etc...
  12. Sawhorses for Mere Mortals

    I knocked these out in an hour and a half using plans from WWMM website. These are really nice considering how easy they are to build. Total cost $11.80 for 5 2×4 studs. Steve, aka steveinmarin posted these plans and video just when I needed a new pair of sawhorses. I made all of the angle...
  13. HHWW: Project #001 - Heavy Duty Sawhorses

    Well, the first pieces of the Sliding Puzzle of Life are in their proper place and I've actually managed to make stuff. A couple of weeks ago I put together 4 of these Heavy Duty Sawhorses I found in a book. While waiting for the tools to arrive, I thought I would hand cut and assemble one, but...
  14. Folding Sawhorse 2.0 with Free Plans

    I have completed version 2.0 of my version of the folding sawhorse. It has been tested for a few weeks on various construction and remodeling jobs and they have proven themselves strong, easily transportable, very stable and a popular conversation piece. I have what I think is enough...
  15. Self Standing Dropbox or Tool Tray

    This project, which requires only few scraps, will be quite handy, mainly when I work outdoors because I have the bad habit of dropping everything everywhere (think also searching everything, everywhere). As you will notice, I've been inspired by the shape of a sawhorse. Made out of 1/2"...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    The thinnest part of my knowledge-base is finishes (pun intended). Please take a minute and explain what is your favorite finish and why. I am very curious to the 'why' part; is it simple preference, look and feel, or the exotic name on the piece. (For example: why use shellac instead of...

    Use a couple of easily modified sawhorses. I haven't tried this, but I'm sure some of you out there have. If you've done this, what are your thoughts on this method?
  18. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have some dried 2" boards of live oak, water oak and pecan. The boards are up to 24" wide. I want to band saw these to cut out the best part of the grain (all straight cuts) and am wondering what saw blade to use. My instinct tells me to use a 3/4" 4tpi raker blade but I am reading that a 12...

    Bought my lumber. Hit the Busy Beaver today and bought all the lumber I need to make the 14 minute sawhorses. Right now it is all stacked up in Bill's shed-tomorrow I will go over and use his table saw to cut all the lengths I need. It's all pine, construction grade 2×4s. The guy in the...
