I built a cross cut sled with 3/4 birch ply, some oak for the runners, and some scrap I had from some old shelving. This is my second sled I have built in the last 2 weeks. The first was for my glorified tabletop craftsman direct drive saw which caught fire. It went in the trash with the saw.
This one was built for my new Ridgid saw which I bought with some trepidation based on the reviews. I did get a good one without issues it seems so After much checking and rechecking I’m excited to saw I have a new saw
The only issue with the sled: I didn’t intend to attach the safety cross bars until I finished a project that was going to need that height. And of course I glued them. Did a real good job making sure I got the finish off the scrap so it would hold well too… Live and learn I guess…
Next I will make a ripping sled maybe 4’ long. Not sure how to make this rails straight though over that distance.
Thanks for looking.
-- I do this for fun.
