One of the great things about woodworking as a hobby is that there isn’t usually just one way to build something. You can find all kinds of different methods for building one project. For example, the following is a unique way to build a sawhorse.
This particular sawhorse is built in a Japanese style. One of the biggest advantages of this method of building a sawhorse is that it can easily be broken down if you need to transport it. It’s built using all compression joinery which gives it it’s strength. The top piece is built using bridal joints, which allows it to fit snuggly into the compression joints of the two posts. All in all, there are only four pieces that make up the sawhorse and even though it is incredibly easy to dismantle and carry wherever you need to, once put together the sawhorse becomes incredibly strong and durable, which is exactly what you want out of a sawhorse. In fact, if you build it correctly, you could even stand on it.
Consider building your sawhorse using this Japanese method. For more woodworking tips or to find wood in Kansas City, contact us at Schutte Lumber today.
