2x4 Sawhorses

Here are some sawhorses me and my bro built out of 2x4's. They cost about $20. The really unique thing about these is the cleat channels on each one which allow you to rip 8' x 4' sheets without having to lean over the sawhorses. You rip them almost vertically, and each sawhorse holds one of the pieces securely so no binding or snagging of the blade occurs. Seen here is a piece of OSB for the garage shelving.

Attached to the top are 2x3 "sacrificial" strips to protect the top from the circular saw blade when ripping large sheets of plywood or OSB.

They are nice and rigid. I'm glad I built instead of bought them.
