In this video, I link up with Woodcraft and finally build a sturdy sawhorse -- something I have been looking to do for a long, long time. I wanted to work on traditional woodworking skills, so I decided to make these simple sawhorse plans with mortise and tenon joinery for the whole build. I incorporate some curves and use some simple accents to hone in my skills!
You can check out the fill build on how I made these sawhorses in the video below, with the included step-by-step instructions below, or by downloading my FREE simple sawhorse plans below! Let me know what you guys think.

Layout and cut down the store-bought lumber to dimensions listed on the plan cut list!
Glue up the parts for top & the feet. These will be the only parts requiring glue, although I did reinforce my mortises with glue later on in the build. Clamp to dry.
Layout mortises according to FREE PLAN and cut using a mortiser, drill press & chisel, or old school with a chisel and mallet. Clean up the cuts with a chisel when you’re done.
Layout and cut the tenons according to the FREE PLAN. I use a bandsaw, but a handsaw or table saw would work just as easily.
Using your table saw or bandsaw, cut the profiles according to the cut diagram. These steps are not necessary, but eliminate bulk and add some nice aesthetic. Cut the Curves for the other visual aspects of the sawhorse. Then clean them up using a hand sander or an oscillating spindle sander.
Assemble the sawhorse using glue and a rubber mallet. You can finish the horse with a coat of finish for protection. And boom, there you have it: my super simple sawhorse plans.
