ToolCrib has a roundup of free sawhorse plans, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for in a sawhorse there, I don’t know where you will. Unless, of course, you’ve designed your own. Please share your plans with us in the comments! Via Core77. Image from

    Woodworking plans can be downloaded for free online, I have always been an advocate of buying them instead. One reason is because free plans aren’t easy to find in the first place. You will have to spend a good deal of time browsing before you come across some. Second, free plans are free for a reason; they are not usually the best plans. However, this is not always the case, as you can find some great plans for free. When you buy woodworking plans from a reputable place, you can be sure that quality of plans is not an issue. You can trust their accuracy and have confidence in them while building out your project.
