Here’s a couple of sawhorses I built out of some hickory that I had left over from a previous project. I don’t really like working with Hickory much, and since I don’t have much space to store wood, I had to find a use for it.
They’re built with all wedged mortise and tenon joints, using walnut wedges. I kinda of knew it going into it, but walnut is such a soft wood, it broke really easy when pounding the wedges in. I also used 5/16” brass threaded inserts to secure the replaceable top support.
All in all, for mostly having 4/4 stock, I was pleased with how they turned out. They’re rock solid.
