Hi, just want to share the foldable saw horses I made. The design is a copy shopdog sawhorses. I made it out of from reclaimed lumber, that's why so many nail holes. The splayed legs really made a complicated build, too many angles :crazy:

Good job! I'm gonna need a couple of these too very soon.

I love reclaimed wood, it gives a new life and purpose to otherwise useless pieces. :thumbup:

You never know what specie you're gonna get with reclained wood. I've had unusual boards come into my shop that's only revealed after a pass with the planer. Beautiful. Dungon, apitong, dao, etc. etc. maybe only a forestry graduate can say what it is...

...Of course, i've nicked my planer blades with hidden nails even after scouting for them >_<.

Spacious workspace you got there estib, and it's commendable that you went for some complications on your build. Magandang sawhorse yan!

DocV, I actually made one before I built my workbench. It was very useful in planing the huge laminated table top. The removable stretcher allowed me to place plywood on top. Also doubles as additional workbench. Will try to take some pics over the weekend.

Thanks guys. The sawhorses are still not finished though, still going to buy some strap to secure the legs. Using it right now without the straps or rope, so far no problems with legs spreading apart.

The wood was from storage racks from our old warehouse, so I'm guessing it's lauan. I did manage to find one with a nice grain, don't know what type of wood is it since my knowledge in wood types is very limited, it's the first wood I tried to plane, it's heavy and dark got me curious what underneath :think: This got me to buy a Groz plane and starting planing the other pieces. So far nothing out of the ordinary but the wood is far better than those sold in the hardwares now, too bad too many nail holes and the longer pieces are bowed and twisted, I think due to being subject to constant heavy load when it was used as storage racks.

Yeah, hidden nails are a problem. I did hit a nail when ripping one, good thing its just a small nail and no damage to the saw blade. I now use a very strong magnet to check for nails.
