Super Strong Lightweight Folding Sawhorses


In this video I am going to show you how to build these very strong and lightweight sawhorses. The ones you see in the video above have been in use for many years and they are still going strong, so I know the design and materials stand up to regular use.

There are only a few important things to keep in mind if you build these…

  1. Use 3/4″ exterior grade plywood to ensure they stand up to the weather
  2. Use a good quality waterproof glue on all lapping joints – this alone will double the life of these sawhorses!
  3. I found that the type of screws used is not critical, I used regular zinc plated screws and they have stood up very well. Stainless steel is not required.

Hope you enjoy the video and if you have any questions, simply leave a comment below…
