To download a measured drawing or to see the full photo gallery, click here:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Super-Sled-Crosscut-and-Miter-Sled.aspx Project Description: I just completed a two part video series on how I made my new table saw sled. I’ve named the new sled the “Super Sled”. The Super Sled combines two of my best shop jigs! I love my original crosscut sled, so when the voters at Eagle Lake asked me to make a video about how to make that s...

Shop Organization #7: Crosscut Sled version 2.0 and Panel Sled

2376 days ago by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

With the new saw I have needed to make a new crosscut sled. I have been struggling with cutting large plywood panels so I also decided to make a panel cutting sled based on Norm's design Panel Sled I started by planing some white oak to fit in the miter slots. The runners are set just below the table surface. I attached the runner to a 3 foot run of plywood…. .... and ran the ply through the saw. I attached a fence to the back of the sled square to the cut edge. It...

Table Saw Jigs #1: A Crosscut / Miter Sled for Craftsman 10" Table Saw With Non-Standard Miter Slots

861 days ago by Retsof | 2 comments »

Here’s a link to a video that I made about my new crosscut / miter sled that I built for my Sears Craftsman 10” Table Saw with non-standard miter slots. I hope this helps some others who are looking for a solution to improve the accuracy of cross cuts and miter cuts with similar inadequately equipped table saws. I added the miter cutting features after this video was made, so I will have to update the video or include some new photos at another time. http://youtu.be/0Gr5t...

The Super Sled #1: Shop Built Tenon Jig

1977 days ago by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I finished the latest accessory for the Super Sled – the Tenon Jig. It’s pretty darn easy to build. Given the cost of commercial tenon jigs, you could easily make this one with the scrap plywood you have laying around. The Tenon Jig’s features include: - micro adjustment feature- built in scale- unique leveling system For PDF measured drawing of the Super Sled and the Tenon Jig, go to the project page and click on the “Browse This Projects Files” link towards the top:h...

Building My Roubo Bench #6: Starting the Legs

922 days ago by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

Now that the top is done, it’s time to start the legs and stretchers. I wanted real thick and sturdy legs, so I’m going for 5” square. Prior to starting this project, I had never done any real lamination work. I’ve glued boards together before, end-to-end, to make wider planks. But that material was only 1/2” thick. I never did anything this big before, but this whole lamination thing seemed pretty easy in concept. Sure enough, it wasn’t too bad. Now...

Shop Organization #9: Workbench Cabinet (Part 2)

2369 days ago by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

Drawer Parts Galore I started by squaring some panels to the width of the drawers. To save time I rabbeted the entire panel. Later I would rip them to create the sized drawer fronts. Testing the drawer front fit. You can see the drawer pieces in each cubby awaiting their fronts. The backs of the drawers are held by dadoes 1/2” in from the back of the drawer. I got to spend some quality time with the new crosscut sled.If you squint you can see that there is another 1/2”...

Crosscut Sled from ShopNotes #99

869 days ago by Joe Lyddon | 2 comments »

I started out making the Crosscut Sled as in ShopNotes Vol.17, #99… Page 24. I was doing OK, except that the one in the magazine was made for a Right Tilt Blade…... Mine is a Left Tilt; therefore, I dropped many of the features that I liked and it resulted in more of a straight vanilla Sled. It does have an extension that can be added for longer material… Here are the pictures taken…

Carpenter's Tool Box for soon-to-be two year-old boy

1751 days ago by NBeener | 12 comments »

My wife’s grandson is somehow about to turn two. Time to turn him on to tools, huh? That’s the primary reason I’ve been taking a whack at dovetail joints. The tool box is in dry fit, right now. In the next day or two, I’ll move to glue-up. The cuts in the ends of the handle are for wedge/shims to hold the handle in place. The pics: ....Current plan is to fill it with something like this….. I did something wrong with the plywood bottom. The ...

New Crosscut Sled

619 days ago by MrWhite | 11 comments »

After reading a few articles and watching a few videos that had one, I decided to build a crosscut sled for my table saw. I looked at a bunch of designs but eventually came up with my own. Here’s what I built: I used ¾” birch ply for the base, doug fir for the front and back rails, and red oak for the sled runners. I found a 2×8x20’ at the local hardware place that had some very nice tight grain. Most construction lumber has really wide growth rings but this one board, out o...
