Here is the first of my two saw horse horses that I am making for this year's Exposed! held in Stowe, VT and organized by the Helen Day Art Center.
I need two of them because I don't believe that anyone, in the history of humankind, has ever made just one saw horse. It's big, 8'6" x 10' x 5', constructed with northern white cedar so it should easily last over twenty years without any treatment. I'm a little surprise that I couldn't find any examples of anyone else making a saw horse horse though a Google search. It seems like a pretty obvious subject. With the second one I'm planning on having the head point upward. I think they will be inspirational, as in, making people ask, "What can I make with two really big saw horses?" My own question right now is whether it looks horse-like enough. It has 4" nails along its neck for mane but is the head too big or should the neck be longer? I need to find a six year old and get some feedback.
