 How To: Build Japanese Sawhorses

If Len Cullum’s Skill Set pieces have been getting you in the mood to try your hand at some woodworking, check out these gorgeous sawhorses he shows you how to build on Make: Projects. Based on the trestles from a Japanese woodworking bench, they’re moderately difficult to build, but Len does a clear job of describing the process, the tools required are pretty basic, and the procedures are not that hard if carefully undertaken. And look how swanky the results are!
