LJRay's Workshop Chronicle #1: New Sawhorses

137 days ago by LJRay | 0 comments »

The documentation of the taming of my workshop. In order to save space I’ve replaced my sawhorses. I was previously using a apair of old kitchen corner cabinets and moving those around as needed. While fairly light they are bulky and awkward. I’ve decided they would be put to better use in the laundry room. To replace those I purchased four Ebco folding sawhorses for $10 each on sale at Menards.The caps on the top of them was an idea from The Family Handyman.

Workbench Build #4: Almost the whole top

137 days ago by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

Managed to get all four sections of the top glued up. A bit laborious, but pretty straightforward. Decided to take a suggestion and use some jatoba for contrast. The plan was to glue up 4 sections of boards. Then I’d flatten each section before gluing the sections together. The rationale was that it would be easier to flatten each section using the powered jointer and planer than it would be the entire top using hand planes. There were two problems with this approach, both of whic...

Yet another folding sawhorse (this one is different)

159 days ago by DonnyBahama | 0 comments »

I completely forgot that I had put this out there. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it’s been downloaded well over 2000 times! I haven’t had the chance to build any myself – but I’m wondering if maybe someone here has? If so, I’d love to hear about it! What makes this one different is that it’s only 3.5” thick when it’s folded up – maybe only 2.5 if constructed with 2×3s! Have a look at the “shop dog”, “ulti...

Ultimate Sawhorse/Workbench Base Product

435 days ago by CentipedeSawhorse | 25 comments »

I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where I designed power tool attachments and accessories. Having the time to pursue projects that delight me instead of the owner of this company, I have decided to try to bring one of my best ideas yet to market. I would love to have your feedback on both the product and my approach to funding the project. I recently semi-retired from my position as the VP of R&D at a small hardware company where ...

72 degrees in my head, All the time

901 days ago by danzaland | 1 comment »

Okay so it wasn’t 72 degrees, but it was close. Early March and a 60degree plus day in Rochester, NY, you want to be outside. SO I was. I squared up a round log.Video Log Overview I used my Logosol Timber Jig and a 2×6 rail I built (seen here). Close Up 1 Close Up 2 So now with my circular saw and a hand saw I plan on cutting this 8×8 down to 4×6’s and trying to make sawhorses. BTW: Can anyone name the movie this entry is quoting?

DIY Folding Sawhorses Video- A How-to

1344 days ago by Sailor | 5 comments »

Here are some folding sawhorses that I built a few months back and added them as a project. I had recorded the building process but was unable to get the files off of my camera to edit them due to a lost software, but I bought a new software so here is the video! You can find some more information like the cutting layout, dimensions, hardware and some more detailed photos on my blog, The Woodworking Trip. I really like these sawhorses and I have built myself two sets. One that I use...

Project #1: Sawhorses #1: Day 2 Update

1429 days ago by JamieH | 3 comments »

Well, I began day two of building a pair of sawhorses from the Matthew Teague “Projects for your Shop” book. I posted day 1’s progress under the Woodworking Skill Share forum yesterday. Just realized this might be better in blog form. I got the legs cut to length with proper angles cut for top assembly, assembled the top, and screwed the legs in before I ran out of daylight. I still have end braces, stretchers, and a shelf to add. I still am having wood screw joinery issu...

Sawhorse

1439 days ago by EMVarona | 2 comments »

When ideas come to mind, I find it imperative that I should try to work it out. The least I can do is to make a sketch or visualization of what that idea is all about, lest it goes to waste. The lowly saw horse is an example. There are many versions, from simple to complex. Some are easy to build the others require more advance skills. My version I would think is fairly easy. http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/sets/72157624855604149/detail/ The illustrations were done with “Wing...

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #4: Sawhorse the second - the 'aaaahhh' version.

1486 days ago by AnnaEA | 1 comment »

I finished my sawhorses this afternoon—I have to say that having a sawhorse to use made building the second sawhorse much easier. It was also educational. I learned not to nail the sawhorse to the floor, and that the stringers should be nailed on the outside so that when you put your foot up on them to saw something they stay attached to the sawhorse and don’t pop off. This one was nice – I was in the zone. It went together like a dream, in very close to the titular...
