The "I'm Not Worthy" Project Log #8: I Said Hold Down for a Jig.... Not a Jig at a Hoe Down!!!

03-02-2014 01:21 AM by DIYaholic | 25 comments »

With the CC Sled (nearly) completed, in the last blog entry, it was time to put it to use.However, it was not safe for human (or my) use….There wasn’t a “Blade Guard Box”, nor did I have any hold downs.This left fingers in serious peril!!!ALL of that changed today…. I was able to attach the “Blade Guard Box”, for where the blade exits the sled.I feel sooooo much safer now!!! ;^) But that isn’t the reason for this posting….I was also ...

my first blog entry: I made a plexiglass cross cut sled! & step by Video

03-01-2014 06:12 PM by MikesProjects | 5 comments »

I needed a new table saw sled for a different saw i’m using. I’m currently finishing a miter saw cut station I built & needed a sled to make small cuts. After having made a few others I notice how wooden sleds react to moisture content in the air so I wanted this new one to be built with out wood. I made this new sled out of left over plexiglass I had laying around & used aluminum for the runners. The fence is actual bulletproof glass.It came out better looking than I wou...

The "I'm Not Worthy" Project Log #7: Cross Cut Sled - Winging It!!!

02-23-2014 03:08 AM by DIYaholic | 22 comments »

Besides motivation, energy and time….I need a cross cut sled. I’ve checked out most of the various sleds and “Super” sleds here on LJs, from the basic to the multifunction/multipurpose sleds. All these possibilities led to a paralysis by analysis situation. Since I was worried about how accurate my “first” sled would be, I decided not to over complicate things by making a “super sled”. I figured why put so much effort into something I wasn...

Season of shop upgrades #3: Cross Cut Sled

02-16-2014 10:38 AM by PJ72 | 6 comments »

Another Table Saw UpgradeA quality cross cut sled has been on my to-do list for some time. I have seen many plans in the magazines over the years but have never built one. Now that I have finished my first cross cut sled, I don’t know how I got along without it. Desired Cross Cut Sled Features 1) I wanted a sled that would handle 24” wide panels.2) needs a dedicated easy to adjust stop block for repeat cuts.3) needs to accommodate zero-clearance on both the bottom and front fence to pr...

Evolution of a Shop #28: New Cross Cut Sled

02-29-2012 02:57 PM by Cory | 5 comments »

There have been a few cross cut sleds posted recently and it motivated me to replace mine. The original was a little small and a little heavy. My max capacity was about 14”. I used maple and cherry for the fences, which looked nice, but weighed too much. A few other lessons learned gave way to Version 2.0: Overall size is 24” x 36”, quite a bit larger than my previous sled. Capacity on this sled is 21”. Base is 1/2” birch ply. The rear fence feature...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #9: Milling and final dimensioning!

02-16-2011 06:43 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Well today is day 3, the halfway day again! It was a great day today, managed to fix the error I’d made last day by just swapping two pieces so I’m happy about that. I was concerned that my boards may have twisted between classes but the wood must be well and truly dry and acclimatized and I guess there was not too much stress in the boards so far so good. Managed to final dimension all of the pieces (about 12 of them) and just began figuring out the mortise and tenon joints o...

I Built a Monster (w/pics)

03-26-2010 05:27 AM by davidroberts | 7 comments »

Another cross cut sled, big woopee. While not my intention, this cross-cut sled is too big, too heavy, but is square to a gnat’s behind and can handle 20” wide board. Rather than tell you how great it is, I’m going to tell you the problems I had and what I would do differently. But first, thanks to Alaska Jim for PMing me to get off my duff and finish the durn thing. This behemoth being exactly the dimensions of my Grizzly cabinet saw top – 48” wide by ...

I posted this on my blog with pictures and wanted to share with LJ. The following is a copy of the text.There are pictures of the table under my projects. This post is in response to a question I received on the woodworking site The Wood Whisperer The question/challenge is how to cut the 22.5 degree angle for the top section of the table and have all eight pieces fit together. There are two factors that influence how well the joint will fit....
