I took the old sawhorses out of the annex barn and brought them over to the back porch.  I want to make another bench to hold my 12" guillotine shear, and my drill press.  I have to chisel off the top of the center 2x6.  The wide boards are on the right-18" and 19" wide by 1" thick.

I tested 3 drill bits different sizes, to see which one would be best for the square cut nails which would hold tightly but not split the wood.  All of them are in, and they look fabulous to me.  They hold super tight, are flush, and since I have about 10 lbs. of them, I don't have to buy any for a long time.
