Introduction: Foldable Sawhorse

Production of folding sawhorse from scrap raw materials.

Step 1: 1.Material

Production of folding sawhorse from scrap raw materials. In what way ?

This is the "LEGO" waste-processing system in the domestic way. Lego cubes are known around the world. We can build products that we want, depending on our knowledge and imagination.

In the real world, there are waste materials for me like LEGO cubes, which can be assembled according to our needs. Why do something work if it's already done?

The product must provide usability, functionality, aesthetics and without harm to the environment.

There is such an example.

I want to explain to you my way of working. I decided to make sawhorse because I need them for my workshop. I was thinking of a wooden or metal variant. I wanted to make it simple and better. I did not think about how to do it. Then I started to »accidentally« receive the material. I got the housing from the couch, I found a frame cupboard with hinges, I got metal parts from the windows, my friend gave me two decorative battens. So I had everything except small material. When I was watching this material, I got the idea of how to make sawhorse.
