Hardworking Sawbench

Hardworking Sawbench

The no-nonsense usefulness of a sawbench in the shop can’t be overstated. Making a pair of them merely multiplies the benefits.

Sawbenches have been used by craftsmen for centuries. These short work supports were originally intended to aid in using a handsaw. And while they’re fully capable of handling this task, this splayed-leg design makes the bench useful for several other tasks. With a wider top and shorter stance than a sawhorse, a sawbench is appropriately sized so that you can kneel on a board to provide clamping pressure. And the ripping notch on one end allows a workpiece to be fully supported during long rip cuts. Beyond these basic functions, a sawbench (or better yet, a pair of them) can also be used as a general assembly station or as finishing supports. A thick top with dog holes provides multiple clamping options. Best of all, you can knock out a pair of these benches during a pleasant weekend in the shop.
