Having just bought a house, I'm back in full DIY mode again. And as everyone knows, DIY requires saw horses! So knowing that I would be needing a couple in the near future, I sat down with AutoDesk Inventor and quickly drew up a simple design, based on timber that was in cheap and plentiful down at The Ply Guy.
And a few minutes later I had a set of plans ready to go:
Timber used:1x 2410x300x23mm industrial ply shelving4x 2700x65x40mm reject grade LVL timber (LVL = Laminated Veneer Lumber, a super strong engineered wood, basically thick ply)Small length of 150x10mm ply
$20 of wood later and I was ready to get building. First up I ripped the 300mm ply shelving into 150mm wide bits 800mm long for the top of the saw horses. Table saw made short work of that.
Then I made the brace under the top of the saw horse from the LVL. Next up some legs... these were a little fiddly with all the angles, but...
