Got a project coming up that I will be wanting four sawhorses for. Not going to buy any. I can make a sawhorse, but I want something simple and fast for this. I could make some simple take-apart horses from plywood, but besides taking more time than I want to spend, I don't want to use that much plywood. So, rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, google is our friend. And found this, in several places actually, but this one is possibly clearer to understand.

I like it, simple crosscuts, no angle cuts, no detailed instructions by some idiot, and I have some old 2X4s, so don't have to buy a thing, unless I'm out of nails, not checked on that yet. For what I want, these will be about 22-24" tall probably, and maybe 2' wide. May use double headed nails, so can take them apart easily later - no screws, I very seldom, if ever, use screws for any of my work, too much of a PITA. I would possibly also make the bottom pieces maybe 6-8" or so, rather than going the whole length of the underside of the top - depends on how far my 2X4s go. I give this two thumbs, and two big toes, up.
