Free Sawhorse Plans - The
The Only 14-Minute Sawhorse Plans On
Step 1 - Cut out the following pieces
to build a pair of 2 sawhorses:
- (8) 30-inch 2x4 pieces
- (6) 32.5 inch 2x4 pieces
- (2) 12"x12" pieces of scrap plywood from
1/4 thick or thicker
- (4) 32.5 inch pieces of scrap 1x6 or
approx. 6-inch wide plywood
- You will also need about (30) 16d coated
or galvanized nails and about (40) 8d coated or galvanized nails
Step 2 - Construct two I-beams as
shown below with the (6) 32.5-inch pieces using the 16d nails. Keep
the pieces centered as well as possible. Tip: Use several drywall
screws to hold the boards correctly in place before nailing.
Step 3 - Nail the
(4) 30-inch legs onto each I-beam as shown below with 16d nails.
The I-beams will cause the legs to be correctly angled.
Step 4 - Nail the 12"x12" pieces
onto the ends with 8d nails as shown below. Tip: Make sure horse
sits level on the ground before attaching the end pieces. Nail
the boards evenly spaced from the top if you want nice looking
Step 5 - Attach 32.5" 1-by-6
scrap lumber to sides as shown below with 8d nails and trim off
plywood end pieces. You are done! These horses are
darn near as strong as a horse and take only minutes (hence the
name 14 minute sawhorse) to build once the materials are
gathered and cut out!
For some somewhat nicer sawhorses, try the
plans a friend of mine made up at
Why the name 14-Minute Saw Horse?
Someone already had what they claimed to be 15-minute sawhorse
plans, however they were more like 30-minute plans! In
actuality, each of these sawhorses above could probably be
constructed in about 10 minutes once all the pieces were cut out.
