Position 3/8" plywood braces on outside face of legs butting into the bottom face of main stretcher. Scribe angle onto braces with your pencil and cut. Apply some glue to outside of legs and secure braces with 6 screws, three into each leg.
Now draw 2 lines down length of each top step, offset 3/4" from center. Countersink 5 holes, 3/4" deep in each step. Alternate holes on each side of center. Position top onto stretcher flush with ends. Secure with screws only.
Finally secure lower step midway up leg using screws & adhesive.
That's all there is to it. These saw horses will easily take load of a lift of plywood or studs. Plus make a great scaffold. Space about 8' apart and secure a 2 x 10 between them.
