A New addition to my Workshop Family!

After 32 years I finally built a brother to go with my apprentice built Donkey.
Why Donkey well at only 500mm high it is not big enough to call a Saw Horse (but do not tell them)

Are you putting the old one out to pasture?

Nice,but you should have made two and sent the old one to a retirement farm.
Tricky little quadrupeds aren’t they as I found out recently when I replaced my old ones, if yours are donkeys mine at 430mm must be Shetland ponies, but mine have much deeper tops (8”?) as I use them as step ups as well. Ian

Nice work.
I add sacrificial tops to mine so that I can rip big planks with the circular saw without worrying about what is underneath.
Cheers !

Nice idea.

My 4 (2 horses, 2 ponies) at 15 years of age are needing repair/replacement, as the legs are getting wonky.

I've tightened the screws many times, but now they need more substantial work.

Cheers, Vann.

I wondered about putting the old one out to pasture but when I looked in detail to get measurements and angles, I concluded that its stronger than it looks. I do intend making two wide bodied ones for standing work in progress on (and step ups). I have not decided between the same design and stool type that Mike G made a few months ago. The beauty of this design (now I have more than one) is you can stack them very efficiently which in a shop is very important
