All About Sawhorses
This collection of articles about the essential job-site work surface will help you choose or build a set that fits your needs.
It’s hard to imagine a job site or workshop with out a pair of sawhorses (or several pairs) because so many woodworking and construction tasks require these solid, compact, and comfortable work surfaces to get things done. But because sawhorses get used for everything from cutting heavy timbers to assembling fine pieces of furniture, different jobs demand that sawhorses have different dimensions and features. Plus, each craftsperson’s preferred style of sawhorse depends on how portable it needs to be, how many different types of tasks it needs to be good for, and whether or not that person wants to just buy the best factory-made model or feels compelled to craft a set of horses that perfectly matches their own sensibilities. Whatever kind of sawhorse you want or need for your next project, there’s a good chance there’s a Fine Homebuilding article that can help you choose or build it, and we’ve collected them all right here.
