    "Super" Saw Horses....

    ..or, as I call 'em, "Saw Oxen"



    Uprights on each end are 2x8's - the cross braces are 2x6's, the feet are 2x4's, and the removeable, re-positionable long stringers are 2x3's. Makes a nice moveable (I hate to say portable - they are kinda heavy) work table, easily big enough for a 4x8 sheet of ply, and the leg structures stack for storage.









    This has proved to be quite a usefull addition to my small shop space.

    Thanks for looking!

    (Read with Tim Allen style grunting) Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ah, ah, ah. Very nice. It looks like with some regular old 2x4's in place of your nice stringers you could use it to cut sheet goods and never damage the legs.

    Those horses should be tested for steroid use. Looks like a real useful addition to the shop, Kevin.

    Those are the most sturdy saw hjorses that I have ever seen! I thought that mine were good, but yours top mine.
    Cheers, Frank

    I like it except that I no longer have an engine hoist to move them around with in my shop.

    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Look handy. Except I would have to build out of treated lumber and store outdoors.

    They look great. What are the overall dimensions? Ditto on the 2x4 sacrificial table.

    Dimensions & specs

    The whole thing is 28" tall - leg assemblys are 8"deep & 44" wide, the feet on the legs are 16" long. The removeble 2x3's are standard 96" studs.

    Each leg assembly weighs in the neighborhood of 25-30 pounds, so the whole thing comes apart to stack out of the way, when it's time for the tools to share space & play nice with the car.

    Lived in Michigan until I retired in Mexico. Build furniture for use. If I need it I build it.

    ok, Kevin thanks for posting these budwieser horses. Gives me an ideal, maybe construct just a little lighter and arrange outside in a row to put furniture on to spray finish. Haven't got an air compressor yet, but when I do, I'll definitely consider building these for tables, the five slots would allow a long run setup.

    Now I might just try a version of that if you don't mind too much Kevin.
    Great idea

    I think I will make them a bit lighter and add a set of these.

    I use these a lot, the two way brakes work very well.
