Adjustable Break Down Saw Horses

Incorporated ideas from many different styles.

I wanted:
Light weight
easy to break down for transportation and storage
adjustable work surface height – pipe clamps.

I primarily use this to level out my table saw catch table. Just a piece of plywood over these saw horses.

I used plywood drops I had. 3/4” for A frames, 1/2” for top support. On the top support I glued and nailed cleats that sandwich in the A-Frame, and it’s very tight. No slop or wiggle.

I cut all angles on the 15deg preset angle on the mitre saw.

It’s real easy to adjust. I’ve found as my table saw get’s positioned differently on uneven ground I have to adjust my outfeed table, and it was a pain in the butt. This is easy.

Also if you are new to woodworking and you want something that will work on an beginner saw, and also on an upgrayedd saw… this’ll do it. Same w/ or w/out Table Saw mobile base.

Interesting approach using the pipe clamps as height adjustment. Nice work!

The pipe clamp idea was from Woodsmith (I think). Definitely not mine.

I recently saw this version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hpyyp819R6Y and I like it. But your knockdown-version looks even more versatile to me. Thanks a lot for sharing!

Agree with the great idea comments, and definitely takes less space than my current sawhorses.
