Rockler wins award from Popular Mechanics

MEDINA, MN - Popular Mechanics has awarded Rockler Woodworking and Hardware's Sawhorse Supports with its 2011 Editor’s Choice Award. The Popular Mechanics team of home editors singled out the best new products at the National Hardware show on May 10, 2011, and Rockler's Sawhorse Supports product was recognized for its outstanding achievement in new product design and innovation.

Patent-pending Sawhorse Supports are substantial steel brackets that slip over sawhorses, allowing additional 2 x 4 support inside the sawhorses. With one or more Sawhorse Supports in place, add 2 x 4s of any length to create a stronger, more stable base for a work table. Add a sheet of plywood on top for a solid work space, creating anything from a portable assembly table or sturdy base for a miter saw to a contemporary, "industrial-style" table for your living space.

Without Sawhorse Supports, a sheet of plywood placed on a pair of saw horses is prone to dip or sag in the middle. Sawhorse Supports eliminate that problem by giving additional support right where the table needs it most - in the middle. Sawhorse Supports transform ordinary sheets of plywood or inexpensive hollow-core doors into a variety of stable and safe work and hobby uses such as an off-the-ground base for bench-top tools, a spacious hobby area, a picnic table, a customized work desk with a painted or stained top and more.

Sawhorse Supports may be affixed in place permanently using screws or nails. Or remove them after use for easy storage and mobility. Sawhorse Supports (# 41427) retail for $12.99 and are available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler's independent resellers,, or in the Rockler catalog.
