Drawing upon the carpenters’ saw-horse as a source of reference, this trestle is a lighter more refined version in which the customary plywood bracing patches at the top of the legs which resist splaying, are replaced by a simple overlapping leg detail.
A single screw joins the legs into pairs which then screw fix in a scissor like fashion into slots in a top rail. They can be nested together when not in use or easily dismantled and stored or shipped as a compact bundle of parts.
