Do you really need plans? Anyway, the plans Crow indiciated in his
first message are pretty standard. but don't need braces except the
end pieces. Make sawhorses for the size you need, not some standard
sizes and use light pine. I made 3 small sawhorses (20" high and 24"
long) of 2x4s with end braces 1" by 6 inch deep for supporting a
plattform for painting my house; work perfectly. Thirty years ago I
made two 28" high by 36' long saw horses using 2x6s with 1" end pieces
about 8 inches high that I still use for cutting larger sheets of
material. Keep it simple and light weight.
There were some plans for sawhorses in a fairly recent issue of FWW
which were designed by Chris Becksvoort.
I built the low one as I like to place my foot on the board to be cut
without giving myself a hernia ;)
I drew it up in CAD and I can send you the drawing as dxf or dwg if
If your local PBS station carries the WoodWright's Shop TV show with Roy Underhill:

The TV show that featured this, had one tricky part which was to get
the legs to splay out and remain even.
Hope this helps
You know what? If you have an Ikea near you, you might want to check
out the section where they have their table legs. There they have
wooden "saw horses". They have one that can be adjusted for
height....and they're cheap. Or, use that as your idea for a saw horse
to make on your own.
Here's the link. Unfortunately they don't sell these on the website.
