As you can probable tell I’ve been in a workshop cleanup reorg mode the last couple of weeks and I decided next on the list was to make some new workhorses.

If you remember last year I made a height adjustable set of horses and they are great but they take up slot of room.. I’m still going to keep them but I’m going to break it down and store it .

These workhorse I found on Handyman.com and they are pretty easy to make if you would like the plans they can be found here

Materials needed:
1×6x8(top)
2×4x12 (2)
2×4x8 (1)
4×4x3/4 plywood I used scrap material I had lying around
8 butt hinges

I hope it gives people some ideas, I would give step by step but there included in the above link

Thanks for looking
Ed

That is a great saw horse. I’ll have to make a pair and throw these plastic ones away.

Thanks for the plans and motivation. I have some cheap plastic H-D sawhorses that are very unsteady and probably, not too safe. These look like great replacements.

Your project is well timed as I need to replace a couple of my folding horses. BTW, congrats on the DT3, you are a long way from the raised flower beds.
