Although I have 2 great workhorses in the shop I wanted to reinvent them or repurpose them to suit me more, when I built the first 2 workhorses about 3 years ago they were my workbench since then I have built a workbench and wanted a multi- height workhorse and I found this design here:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Perfect-Sawhorses-adjustable-and-knock-down-desig/

This link will lay out step by step how you build this ( with text and or detailed pictures), although I basically broke down my original workhorse I got about 80% of the wood I need I just needed to get some 2×2 and 1×4 and all the nuts and bolts and the dowels,

I really like this idea because I can make the workhorse fit all the different heights in my shop, ie the bench, original workhorse and my table saw possibly to use as an I feed/out feed table…

Below is my Sketchup model :

I hope you like

Nice job Ed, should serve you well. BTW, looks like an organized scrap bin (pics 1&2) might be the next shop project. I set mine on castors so I could move it out of the way if necessary and I no longer have to empty the bin to find the right piece.
