I have completed version 2.0 of my version of the folding sawhorse. It has been tested for a few weeks on various construction and remodeling jobs and they have proven themselves strong, easily transportable, very stable and a popular conversation piece.

I have what I think is enough information to be classified as plans on my blog The Woodworking Trip .

One thing that I included was a type of cutlist in a sheet of plywood that allows you to get nearly all of your material out of one sheet of 4’x8’ plywood.

Something that shold be coming at a later date is a video on the building process. I actually videoed the build I just have to download a certain video software that enables me to get the video off of my camera, HDWriter, but I can’t seem to find it. I’ll keep looking though.

I think these are absolutely great sawhorses and everyone should have a pair! I am actually building myself a second pair to have in my shop, these things are so compact you can store them out of the way so easily.

Great job Dave! Those look great. I’m glad you think you need a set.

One thing I see that is different is you have two pieces of 3” plywood under your 2×4 cross member. I only have one and it seems to do the job plenty.

The screws don’t come up from the bottom, instead they come from the side (one on each end but opposite sides). You really don’t have to worry about cutting into the screws since they are pretty far from the top of the board. Just pay attention to the depth of your saw blade.

I’ve done some video work, so if you still need help with the video, send me your make and model of your camera, and I’ll see what I can find for you.
