This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in round wood working.

This BB will be building a simple saw horse.

A saw horse can be a very useful tool, holding wood steady while sawing or shaping the wood.

The dry pieces of wood should be the legs, fitting in to the main piece of green wood (freshly cut piece of wood). The idea is that the green wood will shrink and further tighten itself to the pieces of dried wood.

Holes are made in the green wood, and the dry leg pieces are inserted into it.

The top piece of green wood is a bigger log, and the legs are inserted into the bottom.

This video shows a good design and step by step process of building it.



Be safe when using hand tools, work at your own risk, and enjoy building!

To get certified for this BB, post three pics.  

  - Your chunks of wood that you are starting with
  - Progress about half way through, with the hand tools you have decided to use for this
  - Final product
