Well, it’s finally redesigned and finished! I call it the “Shopdog”, a craftsman’s best friend. It really is the best folding sawhorse design out there. You can custom make any attachment you wish and they can be interchanged very quickly and tool free. When attachments are locked into place they stay there. As shown in the pictures you can make a miter saw stand easily by using any straight 2×4 at any length. All you have to do is mount your saw on a piece of plywood with a couple of runners and make some basic material supports and you are done. You can mount almost any small woodworking tools such as: a planer, scroll saw, grinder, etc., on the same type of table that the miter is sitting on and you have a interchangable machine support.
My new design makes building this sawhorse a breeze. It takes about an hour to make a pair once you understand all the machine set ups, which are not that difficult. It can all be done with hand tools, but it may take you a little longer. And, it will only take you an afternoon in the shop to create all these attachments shown.
I also incorperated a french cleat on the top cross support, this allows for the shopdog to mount on the wall with ease.
If your kids or grandkids are bored while running around your shop, make them a horse attachment, they will love it. My horse hasn’t left the livingroom since I made it.
thanks for looking… and I have more pictures and attachement options on my webpage.
