Completed in late 2013, this pair of sawhorses has proven to be a great addition to my shop. Constructed out of southern yellow pine & finished with a little danish oil. I ripped to width some of the boards on the bandsaw, but otherwise every other step was done with hand tools, including dimensioning the wood. This was my first time cutting angled joinery; however, this was much easier than I expected it to be. The design belongs to Chris Schwarz; I found a link to his plan on one of his blog sites. A wonderful weekend project.

Nice sawhorses! Projects like this are all the more satisfying when you do a bulk of the work with hand tools.

Very good work, and a nice addition to the shop. You certainly can’t go wrong with a Schwarz design.
