Here are the ‘Shorty’ folding saw horses using the same pattern as their big brothers in the second pic. Very solid, easy to store and they are great for getting a little lift on a large project during the sanding and finishing process’. The legs are 14” long instead of the 32” on the full size. Pivot and notches all stay the same. I hope a few of you steal this idea and enjoy them as much as I do!!
thanks for looking

How do you attach the bottom 2×4 and 1×2”?

The 2×4 is pocket holed as it has to fit flush between the legs. The 1×2 is glued & screwed to the face of the other legs. I have changed the 1×2 out for another 2×4. I would suggest this to anyone building these.
