While building my last project I dropped a 4’x8’ sheet of plywood on my plastic saw horses; and that is the end of them. So I was/am in need of some new horses.
This is my attempt at the shop dog. I really did only one thing that I can see different. Instead of strapping down the removable piece with the tie down at the bottom I bored out some 2”x4” holes so that the removable piece can be slipped down the center of the closed saw horses. If you put the string over top, the 2”x4” it keeps it from danging.
Overall they seem pretty functional. The one I build was made from 2 complete 2”x4”x8’s plus an additional piece for the removable cross piece. That makes these a little heavy. I guess these could probably be completely made from 1-by stock as will. I think I made mine spread a little far.
Now I need to make at least one more.
The piece I used for the removable piece was a scrap so that is why it is cut a little weird.
