Standing about knee high to me. A salvaged 2×10 for the top. A store-bought 2×4 by 8’ , and a couple pine1xs scraps. notch supports rip cuts a little bit better. Legs are about 21” long. Handplanes to smooth the top. Glue and screws to hold things together. Cost was just for the cull cart 2×4, about $3. Seems to work quite well.

Nice saw bench, I guess….
I don’t see a need for a saw bench….
I don’t sit down at my TS!!! ;^)

A great addition to the dungeon shop. I’m sure you will put it to good use!!!

I just built one too, haven’t posted it yet. Plenty of splay on those legs, should be nice and stable.

I’m sure it will serve you well. That’s a functional build and great addition to the shop.

Have your say...
