Stackable sawhorse :
In the summer I was
busy designing a pool heating installation and for that I needed
supports to hold large flat items.
So I came up with a design for sawhorses from lumber I have readily
Should you desire to construct (a pair of) similar supports, I have
included the relevant drawings at the bottom of this page.
My desired working height was a bit less than a meter. Accounting for
the thickness of the flat items being worked on I came up with the
dimensions in the drawings.
By the way, all dimensions are in millimeters.
Also, I included a number of sheets which, when printed on A4 paper
should provide you with 1:1 templates to glue onto some stock to be cut
on a bandsaw.
to attach some (non-caster) wheels to one side of one of the sawhorses.
Now, when they're stacked (of course with the one fitted with the weels
on the bottom) I can easily roll them both anywhere by lifting the far
The stackability of these sawhorses provides for a fairly small storing
Initially, I intended gor them to also be foldable, but I guess that
will have to wait for a future revision.
Here's an overview drawing :

You'll have to figure out your printers' printing scale to use the template-option.
