Router sled I made to flatten the top of the workbench I have been working on, I made it out of birch plywood and sheetrock screws. I based it off of other ones I have seen on lumberjocks. I was going to make slots to move the feet up and down but later decided to drill holes every inch instead so I knew it couldn’t slip. Since I thought I was going to make slots in the legs, drilling the holes on the side of the box dead even wasn’t a huge concern, I did it with a hand drill instead of the press.
On one side the holes are offset about 1/16” which wouldn’t matter if I stuck with slots like I originally was going to do, but using indexed holes, it made one of the feet uneven and it wasn’t very stable, so I fixed it by attaching additional feet on the legs so it would be stable and even, I just have to remember they legs are not interchangeable side to side.
I notched out the side for the router handles after I took this picture. I haven’t cut the bottom for the bit yet, I figured I can do that with the mortising bit when its time to use it.
