Sawhorse Plywood End Piece

Make two plywood end pieces to brace the sawhorse legs. To make the first end piece, place a ten by twelve inch, 3/8 or 1/2 inch thick, piece of plywood on two of the sawhorse legs as shown in figure 6. Position the plywood against the bottom surface of the top piece and mark the location of the sawhorse legs on the plywood. Connect the marks and cut out the plywood end piece. Place the sawhorse on a level surface and tack the end piece to each leg with three or more 2 1/4 inch (57 mm) nails. The nails should be spaced no more than six inches apart. Undernailing can weaken the frame and overnailing can damage and weaken the wood. Adjust the end piece until the sawhorse stops wobbling and drive in the tacking nails. Repeat the procedure with the other end piece and legs.
