I went through all the junk wood I had and it turned out to be a blessing as I needed to get rid of the stuff and it all was about the size and length I needed. This rack did not need to be pretty, just functional.

I took some rough cut 2 x 8's and ripped them down to where I needed them. I wish I had taken more pictures of the process but cutting wood is cutting wood. In the end I wound up with two 4 foot high sawhorses with a lower layer for canoes. The lengths came out to be about 74" long by 4 feet high. I opted for gussests intstead of cutting angles pieces between the legs, the last one I cut was so far off I wanted to throw it into the field.

So now all my boats are off the ground, easy to get at for work as they all need a little attention, and I have a good deal of room for other stuff...crap...in the shed. Plus I get all of my other saw horses back cause you know those things are always needed for some project or another.
