Japanese Sawhorses - Quentin's Variation

These sawhorses are a real reflection of my present life situation, living in a share house with limited space and doing almost all of my construction/woodwork/joinery on my fisrt floor balcony. i made these for my self and they will prove very valuable in balcony joinery. i also made an all natural fully compostable floor cushion from potatoe sacks and hemp/cotton canvas to use when im wood working.

You will notice that one of these sawhorses has an off center beam, and holes drilled out of it to accomodate a bench hold down style clamp which i also created from some bought all thread and found steel bar. This is is quite a deviation from the norm in japanese saw horse but the bench hold down and the wooden groved block enable me to work small pieces of metal and clamp cylendrical sections of wood batton/dowel, and should prove more usefull for my multidiciplinary aproach to construction while my bench vice is in storage and construction on the balcony is the order of the day. The bench hold down was in no way easy to machine with nothing but an electric drill and hand tools, but i got there in the end and it work well. For now it has no handle but can easily be tightened and released using my socket set.
