Introduction. A good solid sawhorse. The sawhorse in this project is very similar to a couple that I've had around for so long, I can't really remember when I first made them. One thing is for sure, they've had to put up with a lot of punishment and they've really stood the test of time.

Even though making of this sawhorse requires the odd compound angle cut (a bevel cut across the width as well as the thickness of a piece of wood), it can be built without the use of any power tools whatsoever.

The measurements. The measurements throughout this project are given in both Standard (inches) and Metric (mm). The standard measurements are best suited to North America and the Metric measurements are best suited to Australasia and other countries.
The inch sizes given in this project do not convert exactly to their corresponding metric (mm) equivalents, so use one or the other.

Directly below are the plan drawings.
Under the drawings is the materials list.

The instructions, with pictures included, are on successive pages.
