Motley Poplar Asian Sawhorse

Motley Poplar Asian SawhorseFinally posting instead of lurking. Thanks to all the LJs who kept up my interest in wood during my last few years of work. I built these to upgrade from those flimsy plastic sawhorses that cost $10 but are worth $5. I followed plans of Len Cullum at makezine.com. Inspired also by Richard McGuire and Chris Schwartz.Poplar is about as strong as balsa wood, but they are about 3 inches thick and should hold up. They could take my weight before any glue or pegs. Mostly power tool construction but lots of hand planing, including whittling the walnut 1/2 inch pegs with a plane. Draw-boring is harder than it looks. Now I can start on a baby Roubo workbench to move more in a hand tool direction. My pile of oak is waiting. Cheers.Paxjen, Maryland
