Sure-footed Sawhorses Woodworking Plan

Sawhorses PhotoThere are sawhorses and then there are SAWHORSES. What you really want is something hefty, strong, and safe for working on and standing on. But often what you wind up settling for is something (much) less, usually because you want to be able to fold up and store your sawhorses in a small space.

These Sure-footed Sawhorses give you the best of both worlds. Sawhorses just don't get much stronger, safer, and handier (note the shelf) than these Sure-footed Sawhorses. And they knock-down into four pieces--shelf, top plate, and two leg units -- for easy moving and storage.
