The Cutting Horse Story
However, there were two major drawbacks. The hardware to build them was expensive, and if I cut through the top with my circular saw, the sawhorse and saw blade was ruined.
After I left the remodeling business, I still maintained my interest in woodworking and home maintenance. And those interests require sawhorses. So, I was always thinking of ways to improve my old design.
In 2011 my mother — at the age of 98 — came down with pneumonia. My brothers and I cared for her around the clock for two weeks, and she pulled through. But she had lost a lot of strength and had to quit driving. From then on she required my full attention, and my business activities were limited.
One day I wanted to do some work on the house, so I decided to build some new sawhorses. I searched books, magazines, and the Internet for new ideas and began experimenting with sawhorse designs. All I wanted to do was build 4 to 6 sawhorses.
And so, after hundreds of CAD drawings and dozens of working models (Mom sometimes helping me in the shop), I finally arrived at the design we now call the Cutting Horse™. It’s a Fold-away™ sawhorse with a Cut-thru™ top rail.
It has all the benefits of my first folding sawhorse and none of the drawbacks. It beats anything on the market, and I know you’ll agree.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”1646″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
