Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Attach with 2-1/2" screws bottom piece to center piece, aligning center of bottom with center piece.
Attach legs to bottom center piece with 2-1/2" screws, 8" up from bottom of leg. Attach with 2-1/2" screws tops of legs to center piece.
Build two of these leg sets per sawhorse.
Attach with 2-1/2" screws the top 2x4s and bottom support 2x4.
Place the cross pieces inside the sawhorse and attach with 1-1/2" screws (or similar size).
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
