I have been wanting to build a saw bench for some time now. Just recently I have found some extra time. This is my version of the Shwarz $5.87 saw bench. My version, because I used a 2×8 instead of a 2×6 and I have many errors that I learned from on this build. Which is the point of these projects. I am still deciding on a finish or not.

It has been in my shop for two days and it has been used many times. It makes a huge difference for myself when ripping boards.

Thanks for looking.

Nice, compact but functional. I have a project in process now & was thinking of making two of these, for long boards. Think I’ll sort of copy your design.

Looks great, sturdy for larger pieces

I like it, Sam! Amazing how useful these things are once you have one. Hard to imagine being without a saw bench now, it’s such a fixture. And I didn’t add any finish to mine; it’s YP too.

Thanks Smitty!

It has proven very useful. I dont think I will put any finih on it either. It is now offically complete.
