ESTAR SAWHORSE Solid Chestnut wood

V SAWHORSE, 2nd prize FDS award, Finland

 

 

The design of the sawhorse is the result of a study of traditional and vernacular furniture making and the inventiveness that derives from physically working with the materials implemented. The assembly of traditional furniture has its origin in intuitive knowledge of the properties of materials and the tools utilised in their transformation.

The solid wood sawhorse is composed by five pieces assembled with a demountable mortise and tenon joint. The assembly does not require either glue, nails or screws, achieving sturdiness and rigidity from geometry and the properties of wood itself.

Despite the simplicity of the assembly, the sawhorse is manufactured with the use of 3D CNC machine to achieve the geometric complexity of the joints, also allowing for the design to be adapted to various dimensions.

The sawhorse is custom made on order and is available in Chestnut wood, autochthonous Eucalyptus, Melis Pine, Cedar and Maple.
