Along with assessing my tool inventory, I spent some time this holiday season making my first cross cut sled. After looking at LOTS of different designs with LOTS of different bells and whistles, I settled on Marc Spagnuolo’s (a.k.a. The Wood Whisperer’s) design from his video here. The video was a great help and I’m sure the basic sled will serve me well for quite a long time.

The base is 3/4” birch plywood, around 30” x 40”. The fences are 2 pieces each of face-glued 3/4” plywood, 4 1/2” high in the center and 2 1/2” on the sides. Runners are some scrap oak I had in the shop.
