Building stackable sawhorse

Assembling the I beam

Assembling the I beam

First of all, you need to assemble the I-beam for the sawhorse. Therefore, I recommend you to cut the components from 2×4 lumber. Drill pilot holes through the base beam and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the top component. Add glue to the joint and make sure the components are aligned before inserting the screws.

Next, attach the 2×4 legs to the I beam. You can adjust the size of the legs to suit your needs. Drill pilot holes and insert four 2 1/2″ screws into the beam.

Repeat the process for the opposite side of the beam. If you build more of these sawhorse you can save space, as they can be stacked together easily.

Fill the holes with wood putty and let them dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 100-220 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.

Top Tip: Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, to enhance the look of the project.
