  • Saw horses

    A couple of new items I made for the workshop, a pair of saw horses. Made from some leftover Victorian Ash (trade name for a couple of mountain eucalypt species) they are light yet very sturdy. The joinery is a mixture of half lap for the feet/uprights (cut quickly and accurately on the panel saw) and twin loose tenons for each of the remaining joints.

    Some people call this a Krenov style saw horse, named after the pair shown in James Krenov's book, The Fine Art of Cabinet Making.

    This style of saw horse allows for them to sit neatly together to save space, essential for smaller workshops.
