I got a question on my second saw bench. The first one I built was the one from Billy’s Little Bench and I have used it on just about every project I have done after that. I have used it for other things too. The second one I built is of my own design to help out with some of my physical short comings. That, and it is always nice to have a second one for working long stock. Some folks just use some sort of prop at the other end of long stock, but this one serves in other areas too.

That was a nice comparative review. I have a pair of sawbenches that are similar in design to your second bench. They have the same stability problem, but I prefer being careful not to put too much lateral force on them to stubbing my toes/ tripping over the feet that stick out.

Great review. Both designs look like they work well. I like the added dog holes for hold fasts supports.
