I’m not quit sure what to call these since they’re so versatile they can act as a saw horse, mini bench, and great outfeed table(s) for my tablesaw. I got the plans from a woodworking magazine that actually had two wooden I-Beams to span them for a more configurable bench. I didn’t build the I-Beams, and the two are just perfect.

Total cost is about $20 for a sheet of plywood and a few 2×4’s.

I saw that article and plan to build the set for myself. Any reason you opted not to build the torsion box beams? I think the entire set up sounds useful.

Mostly just space … I’ve got material to build them out someday – just don’t have any major reason to right now.

I built these and the torsion boxes, abeit the torsion boxes are only 6 feet long and 10” wide instead og 8’ X 9”. I love them.

Excellent idea Jon! I love that they are multi-purpose.
