Timbered Sawhorse Trestles
The basic 6"x6" design of these timbered sawhorses are more than strong enough for almost any use. That said, students interested in even heavier duty sawhorses may request timbers that are 6"x8" (5' wide) or 8"x8" (6' wide) for an additional cost, approximately 1.5 times or 2 times respectively the materials fee. Please inquire at the time of registration.

You will need the following tools for this class:
- 1-1/2” Framing Chisel. Barr makes a great framing chisel, and these are available for purchase at the School Store (see below). Woodcraft and Sorby both make a suitable chisel as well. The standard bench chisels available at the local hardware store are not long enough for this type of work. The school and the instructor both have chisels that you can borrow for the class.
- Heavy duty carving mallet. Again, the school has mallets you may use and purchase, but if you want to get your own, look for a 20-40 oz mallet with a wood, rawhide, or plastic head. Urethane mallets are excellent.
- Marking knife. Anything from a swiss army knife to carpet or utility knife will work. (may be available @ School Store)
- Ear Protection (may be available for purchase @ North House School Store)
