FINALLY!

I managed to get to the motor home yesterday for a little while. That's the first for about a month.

Don't expect too much! Lol.

I assembled the second half of the second saw horse, so both halves are glued together now. Wahoo...

Next will be to connect them together, to make them usable.

If you really want to know if your waterproof glue, really is waterproof, just stick a dried brush in some water.

Let it sit for an extended time in the water and see what happens. This one was in water for about 2 months.

A close up of the brush. You can see, it's still nice and dried, just like the day I put it in there.

I took the sawhorses and cut the tops on an angle with my portable saw.

Here's almost what they will look like when assembled.

Yes, I know the tops are not quite level. I had the bottoms too far apart when I took the pic.

When they are folded up, they will look something like this, and reasonably flat when set up to use.

Nope, we are just fine. No relapse. Thanks. Planning on continuing the work.

I was working on the sawhorses tonight, and had a slight mishap.

No, I didn't remove any body parts.

I applied a little too much pressure while using the router, and ruined the bit I was using.

Time to go the store tomorrow for another one, so I can finish these puppies.
