I was cleaning my Garage and I found my Old Skill Clamping Sawhorse. I thought with a little modification I could use it for my project bench. I had to add some runners to support the widened top.. It’s made of spruce and the jaws are Pine. Working in a wheelchair I need to get under my workbenches and this works great!

Cool … I guess this is a kin to the WorkMate (??)
