My first attempt at mortise and tenon joints. Worked out ok and taught me quite a bit. The sawhorses are ash with ebony wedges in the side tenons. The ash taught me to keep my hand planes sharp at all times or it would tear. Now completed the horses are at work.

Nice job on the saw horses and well thought out with the storage below. My first though was the high hurdles from high school!

Nice. Are these the only sawhorses in the world with ebony in them?

I was looking at these in the FWW mag. How long did it take you to put together?

They took 5 or 6 days to put together, but at the most a couple of hours at a time.
