advice for a simple sturdy saw horse design, please?? Answered
Having recently moved into a new home, I should get down and try some simple DIY for myself without having to book the handyman. First thing I should make is a work bench, or a saw bench (hand saw only)
I searched for sawhorses and found several, but: I have a lower-spine injury that means I can't bend too much or for too long; I don't have much back, shoulder or arm strength, so sawing is an ordeal - more of an ordeal is trying to keep the damn wood still - at the moment it skates all over the place, i can't even cut 1x1s. So I'd need to fit something that'd hold the wood still and be able to use both hands on the saw.
Would anyone have any ideas? maybe a slight tweak to an existing model that would help me? I'd want to cut flat wood later, but at the moment I need to cut the frames, 1x1s and 2d2s.
I'd love to have a table saw, it'd be so much easier to cut with, but ... I'm also visually impaired and have never used a power tool other than a drill, and I sort of like my fingers where they are, attached to my hand! And my vision also don't help me to get a good position to saw effectively; i have to get close to see what i'm doing.
So really, I need a sawhorse high enough that i don't have to bend too much, but low enough that I can put what weight i have into my shoulder. Know I'm asking a lot, but does anyone have any [polite!!!] suggestions?
