Simple, yet very effective sled for making 45 degree miters. It’s so easy to make, I started it at 11:00 this morning, shot and edited the video by 4:00! This has to be some sort of record for me. Of course, if you make just the sled and not the video, it’ll take about an hour.

Very nice job in keeping the whole idea simple. And I’m glad you don’t edit out your mistakes(initially too far forward). You are a REAL woodworking Mortal. :)

Good work on the sled and the video Steve. The sled quickly becomes a “must have”.

Nice simple shop jig. That’s what I like a simple build jig that leaves more time for projects. As always Steve thanks.

I’m with Rance! You did a great job keeping things simple, but it is a very useful jig and it will save people loads of time. Excellent video and instructions!

Simple, safe and accurate is always the best way to go. Thanks for the idea, I will be making one when I get to the shop.
