Default sawhorse suggestions/designs pls.

Ok, here's the problem. I'm almost in the new shop. The sawhorses I've got are my father's old ones and they're shot from guns. They're flimsy, fall over (and apart) easily and take too much space to store.

I've seen all of the store bought jigs and contraptions, each more expensive and useless than the last.

I'm looking for a design of a sawhorse
  1. that can serve multiple purposes
  2. camouflaged when not in use
  3. doesn't take any space when being stored
  4. easy to build for someone with "allthunbs"
  5. cheap as dirt or less
  6. any other requirement you deem suitable to add

I find the folding ones very useful. simple to make. Made from 1x4's so they are cheap. will support 200lbs or more. fold up to about 3". I have one set that is over 40yrs old, look kind of bad, but are still useable.

Cut it twice, and it's still too short!
