Here is my favorite sawhorse design to date. I know what you are thinking: “That’s not a sawhorse”! No, really, it is (and then some). There are several features you won’t find ordinarily. The main one is that its height is adjustable from 25” to 42” tall. You can adjust it to any exact height in between or use the pin, so that it is easy to match them to each other. They are heavy duty and will hold more than 800 lbs. of weight when using the pin. If you lock with the lock screw only, it can still hold more than 250 lbs. I use them as sawhorses, out feed stands and extensions for long stock. If I need a quick table, I can throw a sheet of plywood on them. With the wide foot print they are very stable and do not rack or flex. The adjustable shaft is made from heavy pipe and does not flex either. When not in use, they set close together and take up very little floor space. They were easy to build and were constructed from 2×4’s and 2×6’s and pocket screw joinery. I had the tubing structures built special for me. Wait till you see my shop cabinet and workbench with the adjustable height. I have been using all of these for over year now and love them. The uses are infinite. If you thought putting everything on wheels to move them around the shop at will was great, wait till you find all the things you can do by adjusting the working height at will.
