Much depends on the tradition/school in which you trained, as well as personal preference. 🙂 My saw horses tend to draw level with my knee @ 22″ in height, which also falls in line with a good step-up height if carrying out overhead work on site. Much higher and the saw horse can tend to be impractical for ripping/cross-cutting heavier timbers by hand.

Trestles on the other hand tend to be taller. 🙂
