    Honolulu,, Hi.

    thanks for digging this old thread up.. I still haven’t built mine either. I think they are going to be my on site set up as my OA table has found a permanent home in my shop!

    I want ti build a set too. I did collect the ply but it’s not treated, I gotta get some treated ply sick of the bugs eating my stuff.

    wow those trihorse sawhorses are badass – i like’em

    you should try building one to see how well it would work. I debated between that one and another one that was from here.

    That would be good if he likes them that much to build a set and he could post up the progress pics. I don’t think I’ve seen any pics from @madman_us yet.

    nope you dont. but you will see some soon. my shop/ garage is a disaster atm. cant build sh** in there

    We need something like this tri-horse so bad. Mine are so raggedy. I just keep throwing odds and end pieces together to have something. @madman_us…not enough hours in the day.

    Agree, was going to make couple last summer, but things happen. Going to order the plans, they are fairly detailed from what I hear

    Ok it has been some time now. Who built them? Are you still using them? or were they not as useful/handy as you first thought?

    These are very interesting saw horses. It’s really more than just saw horses, it’s a work station system. It looks like with a little creativity you could customize them to no end.

    I want to build some. I just need to get some plywood. The ¾” ply I have is not treated and will not work.

    I’m going to build these too I may just make a set from untreated as most times this will not be in the weather to often.

    Thanks for sharing this BTW … it’s awesome

    I think i would try a good BC and give it a good coat of something before i would go with treated. Most treated i see is rough and gets bad when it dries if not sheer nailed down. Being able to break them down i just wouldnt leave them outside too often.

    Nope not in your area. Darn bugs would have it eaten up shortly after you got one together.

    I don’t have a choice everything must be treated. They treat all kinds or wood rough or smooth.

    NC we have a choice but if it will be outside then you have to go treated. Our treated lumber is actually quite nice and smooth. Except for the weight and color you can buy top rated grade lumber that is treated.

    If you can get treated that is stable great. Nothing against treated in general. Just the stuff here is rarely even thickness, the layers are often separating and wavy as the north shore once it dries

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but are the plans still available for purchase anywhere, all the links I’ve found are dead.

    Hello Daniel
    I’m not sure if they still are , it’s a very nice design
    I think I also saw it on YouTube , not sure I can’t remember if it was that exact same one.
    If you do find out , please drop by and let us know.

    Here are a couple of links I found, the guy was from St. Paul, MN and had a display at our fair a couple years ago. I would try the Twitter feed and he may answer it.
