You can read more about the making of these on my blog. There are lots of ways to make saw benches but I wanted something that would stack easy for tight spaces and double for a seat. I also love the style and look over the A frame types. Although they my not look strong but so far I haven’t had any issues.

The wood used is ambrosia maple.

I like the idea of using as a seat as well. You have inspired me.
Very nice looking set.

Sweet saw benches! I really like the maple. Let us know how the legs work out. Any reason for not having a large notch at the end for ripping?

Thank you. I need to think about doing something like that.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Brandon, I didn’t bother with the notch. I don’t rip a lot of large boards and find I can get by without it for the smaller stuff, plus I still have power tools and enjoy them. ;-0

Very nice saw bench. I was reminded of Gumby when I first saw them but I’m just kinda goofy. Thanks for sharing.
