So I’m in the process of making a shaving horse or coopers bench and not quite sure how to put the legs on.
I was told a quick easy way would be to use plastic sawhorse brackets on the bottom of the bench, like this…
But I was thinking of doing it like this:
Problem is, I’m not really sure how to go about doing it the second way, and am starting to think the first way would be the best. The legs are 2×4 and the bench is 2×10
Is it worth it to cut out for the legs or will the saw horse brackets be easier and stronger?
If I should go with cutting out for the legs, how do I go about it? Where to start? How to transfer the angles? And everything else.
I don’t need it to be perfect, It’s just made out of cheap wood. It’s kind of a prototype, I’m planning on making another one a couple years down the road anyways.
