Trying to rip sheet stock single-handedly while standing 8 ft. behind the saw is no picnic. A pair of horses the same height as your saw table carry the load and leave a path so you can easily guide the sheet from start to finish. Used beside the saw, saw-height horses provide the same stabilizing support for crosscutting sheet stock.
"I saw this and fell in love!". Shut. Up. I have my great-grandmother' old sewing table, much like this one, which I am using as an end table. How can I do this? I need a tutorial. Wait, but I do still need a sewing table, too. Hmm, I may just need to make my desk do double duty.
