These knockdown sawhorses are far easier to move from job to job than a conventional sawhorse.
I first learned how to make these sawhorses 37 years ago from Karl Kulrich, a cabinetmaker who emigrated from Germany to Whitehorse, Yukon in Canada. Karl was a clever older gentleman who taught me a lot and shared many of his tricks of the trade. One of my favorite of Karl’s creations is a method for building knockdown sawhorses that are far easier to move from job to job than a conventional sawhorse, and don’t sacrifice any of the strength. The pieces are made from 3⁄4-in.-thick scrap material, and as you can see from the drawings, they fit together with no fasteners, so assembly and disassembly are fast and easy, and the setup breaks down to a transportable size.
