This sawbench is only 18” tall which makes it perfect for sawing (crosscut or rip) and also serves double duty as my toddler’s workbench. The rip slot down the middle also has a saddle to set in a 3’ pipe clamp which can serve in a variety of ways. A couple of simple dovetails joints and a few dados are all the joints needed.
This was built from all rough sawn pine using only non-electric hand tools. This saw bench can be made easily with ordinary 2×8 lumber.
The finish is amber shellac.
These are incredible handy and I use them all the time. To see the full details along with SketchUp plans, you can read about the saw bench construction
