This is my easy DIY crosscut sled. My old one is now garbage so I needed to redo it. I use the five cut method to dial it in within .002 of an inch in accuracy. For those of you that want to see the build here is a video link!

PS.: I did make one mistake in my calculation of the 7/8 of an inch being .85 when it should have been .875 I accidentally left the 7 out of the equation. Answer still comes out to a – .013 so it is still okay

Nice job Drew! You simplified the 5 cut method to where I can ALMOST comprehend it! I HATE math!
