The three-legged sawhorse

Just about any serious project requires a pair of sawhorses.

If you are working outdoors on ground that isn't quite level, one problem is that a standard sawhorse has four legs, and since three points define a plane, the sawhorse wobbles.

My dad solved this problem with a three-legged sawhorse he designed.  You can find other three-legged sawhorses with a quick Google search, but few with such elegant lines.  To me, my dad's design suggests a gazelle, perhaps with its head down in the grass.  And the way the legs are angled out, as you press down on the top of the sawhorse, it becomes less wobbly and more secure.

Nice design Dad!
