Topic tags/keywords: joynery carpentry saw horse descriptive geometry resource joining

Looking at the link hereunder you will discover a rather complex saw horse. You first reaction might be “why make it simple when you can make it complicated”. Although a pair of such saw horses with a glass plate would make an eye catching desk it is not the end product that is important; it is the journey to get there. Mastering descriptive geometry and woodworking.
Here is the end product (look at the last picture):

Talk of a journey ! The end product is really something to behold. It would indeed look great under a glass table top.

Wow, that saw bench is an amazing work of art. I bet you could park a car on it.
