My first sawhorses.

Some sawhorses. The first wood working project I have undertaken independently. I needed something simple and straight forward that I could build with the tools I have right now—a framing hammer, and an inexpensive handsaw.

Enter the 14 Minute Sawhorses. When I saw these plans I swooned with ecstasy and—- well no. I just thought, I could build those.

And so I did.

Practical and effective. Looks like they were well made. After looking at these I would think your ready to try something a little more difficult.

And so you did!..............and very nicely done. Since you say you have a small shop (the size of a postage stamp), then these should be a very useful addition to your space. Keep up the good work and we will look forward to seeing more of your work. Welcome to LJ’s.

Great job, you can use those for the next project and many thereafter.

I need a pair of those too, so thanks for the plan source!

In the “olden” days when you applied for a carpentry job the foreman would have you build a set of sawhorses as your application for work. When you need a good set of sawhorses nothing else will do.

I have moved and set up a new shop several times, the first thing that makes saw dust in every shop is a set of saw horses, excellent work!
