For this post, I have put together a collection of the best saw horses currently available.
Saw horses are an extremely versatile tool whether you are doing work around the house, in the garage, or on the job site. Use a couple with an old door thrown on the top and you have an instant workbench.
I included several below that fold up into a compact package making it easy to move around or transport. There is also a range of more DIY applications where you build them yourself or they are ready to go out of the box, so it depends on what you are looking to do.
The following saw horses use the latest innovative components to meet your needs and help to ensure you do your best work.
