Here is a pretty simple saw bench I made. Legs are Oak firewood and the top is SYP.
I split and roughed out the legs with my machete. I drilled the wholes with a one inch brace and bit.
The tenons were glued and wedged in place. The top was surfaced with an aggressive jack plane so there is a nice texture to it that you can’t see in the pics.
It’s actually a little short for sawing but it works great as a platform for my boys to stand on.
This was a fun project. I didn’t measure a thing.
How high is it? I don’t know.
What angle is the splay on the legs? Don’t know. The back legs splay out a little more than the front legs.
How wide or long is the top? Don’t know.
It’s very liberating to do everything by eye…
The bench is very stable, I weigh close to 200lbs and can stand on it with no problem. Now I need another one…
Thanks for looking!
