This is a new thread for the tool tote sawhorse that @bar requested. I have calculated the measurements for 3/4 in plywood. I also did all the joints as butt joints instead of the sophisticated joinery that was shown. I would suggest either adding extra wood as a guide around the upright or adding an extra bolt to give two anchor points. Here is a photo of the project and the onshape file. Also attached is the onshape link. You can either copy it or send me a request to be added as a contributor. Please upload your contributions so we can make this a team effort.
Here is the onshape file link: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/615738f6d64132eca3d77ff2/w/d836e0ea24c3cefeb13f7a3b/e/5240f323c4f54b0a1641c5b1
I’ve been working on a version which uses the tnuts as connectors:
I can’t post a link from my phone, but I will
It looks great. That will make it stronger and easier to assemble. Your sawhorse makes mine look like it was drawn with a crayon. But it is only my second thing that I have designed with onshape. I have a lot to learn.
I like my sawhorses with no metal parts at the top, so that if you saw too deep, you just ruin the sawhorse, not the sawblade.
I agree with that. With bars version, you can glue it up and just use the t nuts as clamps until the glue dries and then take them out.
@bar can you upload your onshape link so that I can learn from a pro. Also, how did you do that joinery with the lapped joints.
So true! Also, it’s easy to cut out replacement parts for after you’ve zipped through your sawhorse a few times…

Can you do a video on how to do the references to the dog bones and t nut slots ?
Yes! I will make one! 12345678910
