The one Project Video I get asked the most to make is how to build a crosscut sled for the Tablesaw. Well there are a lot of videos out there on making a Cross cut sled, so this is my take on it. I hope you can take something from this video and use it in your shop

Nice sled. Kinda like the better mousetrap. Does the job but has a couple of features that are new.

Made me think back to the first one I built back in 1980. It was great and a 100% better than a miter gage but a real POJ compared to the sleds I use today.

Makes me feel a lot better seeing all of that crap piled in the corner.

My problem is that everytime I “clean up” an area all of that junk I am “going to need someday” ends up in a pile in another corner. About 10 years ago I loaded up everything that I hadn’t used in over a year and either burned it or hauled it to the dump. Two days later I really needed something that was now at the dump.
