ALRIGHT! I CONFESS!
I can’t take the guilt anymore… It started a few years ago with that big FH article on sawhorses… and then the “Sawhorse Design” thread brough it all back.
I have a confession – My carpenters and I all use those metal sawhorses that the legs collapse and fold up inside the body. Under duress we will build wooden sawhorses if we run out.
Those metal sawhorses only cost eleven bucks, they are lighter, and they fold up small enough to be carried up stairs or put in the trunk of a car.
Maybe I’m not a REAL carpenter, I don’t build my own sawhorses. But I just had to get it off my chest. Anyone else out there?

The shame.......the horror.......
*I'm not ashamed, I use the same EBCO's put a 2x6 on the top and they are slick and cheap. Got 6 or 7 sets in various stages of destruction, nobody steals them. I do have a few sets of nice wooden ones, somewhere around here............
*That ain't nothin' Nick,I have some that I joined timberframe style, some with dovetailed oak, some of the store bought variety like yours, but...... The ones that I end up using a lot because I can always find them are these two my wife got at a school auction. They were made and used by theater students and are typical wood jobs reinforced with ply, but painted all kinds of bright colors, look like the partridge family school bus!You should see the looks I get, trying to be serious contractor with those things sticking out the back of the truck.MD
*Yeah, keep it up boys, let's see just how many come out of the closet. Let me take this opprutunity to tell you have just been uninvited from the next bid.
* We use milk crates.
*Me too.Stolen Alta-Deena milk crates.I confess. I'm not even a a carp.God have mercy on my souls.
*Are you saying you have some spare souls?
*You'll get good money for them over at ebay
