This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Metal Working.

For this BB, you will be making brackets for two sawhorses!  Yes you can buy cheap folding stamped ones but since this is the metalworking badge, we're going to weld up our own!

Here are some versions to copy or just take inspiration from:

The minimum requirements for this BB are:
  - build four brackets to make a pair of saw horses
  - the entire saw horse can be metal or just the brackets
  - visually strong enough to hold 500 lbs with each sawhorse

To document your completion of the BB, provide the photos or video (<2 min) of the following:
  - the supplies you're starting with
  - partway through the build
  - the finished brackets
  - the assembled sawhorses
