Service Learning Project: Sturdy Stackable Sawhorses

Course Overview

Sawhorses are an essential shop resource, and a well-built set will last for years. Help North House prepare for the next decade by building a set of sturdy horses for the shop in this two-day class, ideal for beginners or intermediate woodworkers. Students will create a layout on a sheet of plywood, cut the legs and ‘back’ using either power and hand tools, and tie it all together with cleats and bolts. Skills and techniques learned in this course can easily be applied to create a similar set of horses at home. This course is part of North House’s Volunteer and Service Learning Weekend, and lunch will be provided both days.
