When I saw the folding sawhorses Canexican designed I knew they would be a great help for me. You see I sold all my woodworking equipment 11 years ago when we “hit the road” in our RV. Last year I got the itch to have a shop again so I bought a 24’ enclosed cargo trailer and started equipping it. My intent is not to drag it behind the motor home but to have it movable if necessary. We currently have a lot in Arizona where we spend the winters and this is where I keep the shop. But I digress…
The ShopDog sawhorses are a great design. And for me, because of my space limitations, they are so flexible to hold various tools and clamp to many types of “crossbar” accessories. I found reference to them here on the LumberJock forums and see that that there now is a website at www.woodshopdude.com.
I needed a cutting platform for sheet goods and found a “honeycomb” design on the net which is collapsible. I modified it to attach to the ShopDogs and now have a great cutting table for sheet goods that gets me up off the ground.
The table is made entirely of 3/4” plywood which makes it very strong and stable. It is 4’ by 8’ but breaks down to a stack of plywood measuring 3” by 8” by 8’. One of the photos shows this on the top of my woodrack.
The photos should make it easy to see how the table is constructed. If anyone wants the cut dimensions just let me know.
Now I am off setting up a french cleat tool mounting system for the walls of my trailer. I threw in a bonus photo of the shop…
Enjoy and happy cutting, Jerry
