    My plastic ones broke within a few uses of it, i ended getting a pair of metal ones and they work decently, however i am looking for a new one, and thought about building a wood one that is much more solid.

    When I first read your post I was thinking the guys from the movies. LOL

    Looks simple enough, but these guys don’t like to talk in the video..

    Well I would not call that a video lol more likely a picture and text collage 😀

    I looked last year into Wenzel’s Saw Horse design and I really liked them.
    Saved up a bunch of links about it. For those who are interested to build some:

    This thread is making me want to build some more saw horses to replace the old beat up one’s I have. They aren’t anything special, but have served their purpose well. Old plastic and metal B&D one’s that we have talked about on the forum before.

    Good job on those saw horses Jerry.
    I bought last year 2 sets of “Blue Hawk 32-in Plastic Saw Horse” from Lowes for a total of $25 with tax. they were on clearance and cost normal $40 a set.
    Glad I bought them and they are working out great.

    I have a set of these (branded differently) from Canadian Tire for a similar sale price, and They work fins and stay out of the way most of the time.

    @Austin I have never seen those horses before. Doesn’t look to bad at all. For $6 for the plans seems pretty cheap.

    I hadn;t seen those before either. Looks like a good, sturdy design and they fold up for storage, too.

    BE the change you want to see.

    The fold up on them are easier than almost any other horses and if there are ones easier to fold they are probably no where near in strength.

    my plastic fold up ones have broken apart, the metal ones have thin legs and bent pretty easy. I also got both of them from Canadian tire, now that i think of it.

    I used 4 – 2x4x10s for my build . It was a pretty easy and fast project .

    Those look really sturdy. They also have an adjustable height model listed on the HD website. I have some Stanley adjustable height ones that I always go to because I can set them up to be anything I need: outfeed support, detail work surface, router table support.

    I have a few pair of the Ecco folding horses, pair of the Dewalt folding horses, a couple shop built horses of my own basic design…I still have my plans for Basswood’s Trihorse…just have never got around to building them. I think once I do they might be a game changer…

    I think basswoods are the ones for me. Almost built a set last year then work life got put on hold for awhile. Like how they take apart for storage, and they seem to be way strong enough for any of my needs

    I would go with the Matthias design too, although I would add a sacrificial 2x to the top so I don’t have to worry about cutting into the actual saw horse.
    My dad had a set that stacked on top of each other that he made in high school 30 some years ago that we just threw out, but the wood horses last a long time if you take care of them.

    I think I still have the plans for Basswood’s trihorse as well. I was going to make a set; I still might, but Matthias’s horses may win out. Who knows, I may make both! What can go wrong with that?

    Not a thing wrong with that, seems like that should cover all of your needs. I work in the hood areas most of the time. One of the reasons I like Basswoods is the fact that I can take them apart and throw them on the floor. Never had peices of plywood or drywall taken. This way I wouldn’t have to carry them in and out every day

    basswoods looks nice but i still want height adjustment on my saw horses if possible. i might break down and just build mathia’s one.
