Fold-Flat Sawhorses

A unique design transforms a single piece of plywood into sturdy, versatile shop helpers.

A set of good sawhorses is an essential part of any workshop, but many sawhorse designs take up a lot of space. So we're always on the lookout for one that’s compact but still rugged enough for heavy use. The version you see here is tough to beat. The idea came from a space-saving folding chair design. Each one is cut from a single piece of 3/4" plywood and folds out into a solid A-frame shape. To set them up, swing out the short leg and flip up a shelf that locks onto horns in the long leg.
