My son had 2 expensive saw horses made out of plastic. On his big deck job last Fall, I sawed off a 1 ft piece of pressure-treated 2×12, it fell down, hit the saw horse leg and shattered the end off.
I left the 2nd saw horse on the partially completed deck one night. A big wind came up during the night and blew the saw horse off….......and it crashed into pieces when it hit the ground 10 feet below.
He recently saw a plan for wood saw horses that he liked….....and asked me to build 4 of them. I entered the design into Sketchup.
It took two 8-ft 2×4’s and one 8-ft 1×4 per saw horse to build them.
You can store 4 of them in a relatively small amount of floor space, as shown in 1 of the pictures.
If you are interested in my Trials & Tribulations of building these 4 saw horses, see my web site.
We will test these out in a few weeks when we build a 2nd new deck at my son’s house.
