Step 7: Fix the legs to the sawhorse top

attach the legs to the sawhorse top

Place the top of a leg into the rebate in the sawhorse top.(See far left picture above.)

Align the top of the leg so that its innermost point is flush with the sawhorse top.

Then nail it in place with three galvanized flat-head nails 2 1/2" (60mm) long.

Do the same for the other three legs.

Step 8: Brace the legs and trim the jut-outs.

Cut two braces from (18mm) thick plywood.

Make the tops of the two braces 7 3/8" (190mm) long.

Mark the sides running out 20° off square, then cut. See top-right picture.

Fit each brace at the top of the legs hard up to the underside of the sawhorse top.

Fix the braces to the legs with three galvanized flat-head nails 2 1/2" (60mm) long each side.

Finally, lay the sawhorse on its side and cut off the tops of the legs protruding past the sawhorse top.

There, done!
the sawhorse is finished
