This is my version of the shopdog
It is as sturdy as my workbench.
It works like a pair of scissors. You need to tighten the bottom so the top clamp tight against horizontal throwaway 2×4. I got some ratchet straps from 99cents store. 2 straps for 99cents! You can use luggage strap, bungee cord, a rope with a hitch knot … anything that allow you to tighten the bottom inward against each other.
I needed to replace a post in our pergola. I used it like a jawhorse to hold the post while I loosen the bolts [video it wouldn’t fall on me.
I usually leave one sawhorse unfolded with a clamped on go-to mini table. (see pics)
