I had made a Popular Woodworking/Schwarz style saw bench but found it not to be so great for making long rip cuts. Ron Herman’s design seemed to make more sense with it’s perpendicular sides, and holdfasts, but I still wanted a way to make rip cuts on narrow boards and still have everything supported. Some of the Saw Bench designs I found on the web had a slottted top but all had cross members (for rigidity) that you had to work around when making rip cuts. With this design they’re not in the way
The draw-bored mortice and tenon joints at the base made it surprisingly rigid.
It’s made from HD 2X4’s and 2X6’s
