This 30-in.-tall version of the stacking sawhorse featured in the July/August 2007 HANDY (see p. 16) requires the same construction steps as the 16-in.-tall shorties. The bevels and miters are all 15 degrees. We substituted a 2x6 for the top board on this model, and we added a bottom tray to hold materials. The four lower gussets that support the tray make this sawhorse incredibly stable.
