A fellow can’t have too many saw horses!!

A thought on the design- maybe a stretcher between the legs, on each side, would add a little strength and stability.

Looks nice and sturdy. I have some Fat Max foldup sawhorses but my favorites are the two wooden ones I built.
Good job!

the humble sawhorse. They don’t get as much publicity here on LJ’s, but we’ve all had to make several of them.

Good and sturdy, shouldn’t be a job site or workshop without at least a pair. Good work.

Looks like a good stable work surface, better make another while the plan is still fresh. Maybe make a couple more sets for the job site, you’ll be a hero. :))

Yup love them saw horsies. I rode mine until it got a broken leg….. Then I fixed it and rode it another 5 years and more years to follow.
