Great idea. I would like to see plans on this also. With the minimum area I have to work, anything helps.

Wow that is a neat idea for sure. I bet with the top piece clamped like that it is very stable.
How did you mount the strap??
If you used thinner material for the cross pieces, would be even thinner folded; 1x or 3/4 ply would get you down to 5” you might be able to drop more by putting cross pieces in dadoes would work ok on the inner set of legs, if you did the outer would need to dado inner ones for clearance. (if I am making any sense)

Sweet! Now I feel like a sucker for paying $30 for an overly-heavy metal one from the big box.

Nice design. You have solved my pet peeve of saw horses – how do you effectively store them.

Nice saw horses! Is it the angle cut on the top of the legs that determines the spread at the bottom? If so, what is the angle cut at the top? (Really, really nice design!!)

I can’t recall the angle off the top of my head, but all the cuts are compound angles and to top has two compound angle in each notch.

I too would like more info. I’m curious about folding it up due to the splay of the legs angle. Doesn’t it pinch a bit? I can see how it would not if the frame was square …..

notch the 2×4s that cross the piece in 1 1/2” and you can fold it up to a 3” clearance. When I was in rough carpentry we built many saw horses but none as efficient as this one. Great planning on your part.
