pipe clamp sawhorse

■ A pipe clamp can be used for more than clamping. In my shop, a pair of clamps (threaded on both ends) doubles as a saw-horse. (I don't have room in my shop for "boarding" a conventional sawhorse.)

To make the clamps work as a sawhorse, cut one stretcher and two "feet," see Fig. 1. (I used

2x4's.) Then, pipe flanges are used to attach the pipes to the feet. (Flanges are available at hardware stores for around $2.)

Finally, to add stability on an uneven floor, I glued a pair of W-thick "horseshoes" to the bottom of each foot, see Fig. 1.
