My wobbly sawhorses could barely keep themselves upright, and my old bathroom vanity couldn’t even manage that. We hauled it out in pieces. When I looked around for scraps for diagonal bracing for my ailing sawhorses, I saw the drawer slides from the dilapidated vanity. They made excellent diagonal bracing. They are lightweight, rust resistant, and extremely strong, and they come with pilot holes for easy attachment. My sawhorses were quickly back in service, and the best of the vanity lives on.
