Heavy Duty Wooden Sawhorses

32" High x 48" Long (81 cm High x 122 cm Long) Sawhorses

Frankly, shipping sawhorses completely ready for assembly by putting the screws into the pre-drilled pilot holes, is extremely expensive. I highly recommend buying a set of plans and assembling them yourself or with some help.
However, if price is of no concern, contact me with our contact page.
Prices for shipped sawhorses will be in the hundreds of dollars, but we can definitely do whatever you need and want.

We also do custom designs for special purpose sawhorses.
Use the contact page and I can give you a price to produce plans with multiple sizes, strengths and other qualities.

These sawhorses use the same super strong design we have have been using and abusing on the jobsite for years.

Wherever you look in stores or on jobsites, everyone else uses the same defective straight leg design that results in wobbly, dangerous sawhorses!

There are also some home-built designs I have seen that just do not work out!
We laugh about these every time we remember seeing them.

Flattened sawhorses

Our angled design braces the sawhorse so it cannot rock and wobble!

There is no more dangerous tool on the jobsite than a circular saw!!
Do not take a chance on getting hurt doing a project with bad support for the work piece you are cutting.

Our sawhorse design has allowed us to truly abuse and mis-use our sawhorses to get the job done! We regularly use our horses to stack huge piles of lumber, pound together two pieces of lumber with hammers and sledge hammers to form beams and other pieces, throw them off the truck or trailer in a rush, etc.

Sawhorses can be used for a great variety of tasks.

Online plans to build your own sawhorses now available.

Includes a mini course in rough carpentry skills

We now offer highly detailed plans for building 32" high x 48" long (81 cm high x 122 cm long) sawhorses. Includes a list of needed materials, pictures and drawings. Also includes several sections explaining the design of the sawhorses, different tool options, different cost choices and how to reinforce for extra-strong construction. We throw in some of our useful construction tricks to make the assembly go easier

These plans include an extensive section on tool safety. We explain carefully how to safely and correctly use a circular saw, giving all the details on how to hold the saw, where to stand, how to support the material correctly to avoid a dangerous saw kickback. We explain how to react when that dreaded kickback occurs, so that no one and no equipment is damaged. Naturally, since you do not have any sawhorses to cut on yet, we explain how to correctly cut without a sawhorse. We explain which saw blades to use, which types of screws and nails to buy.

Basically, when you buy these plans, you are also getting a mini course in rough carpentry skills, so you may want these plans even if you do not need sawhorses!

Sawhorse Plans start at $15, which provides a user name and password to the online plans, which you may look at and print a copy of. Custom plans run higher and always include access to basic plans. Whenever we update the general carpentry notes sections over time, you will be able to read these changes later and learn more skills. These general carpentry notes will be part of any plans we sell in the future.

If you need a price for custom plans, please contact us at: Our contact page. We can quickly design smaller and shorter sawhorses or all the way up to large and extreme duty versions.
