Hello, I was in the need for a new cross cut sled because my latest one had been dropped on to the floor and it basically rendered it useless. So I made a new sled, while I was at it I also made a miter sled. I figered I would just post this for those of you who may want to build a quick and simple sled.
The cross cut sled’s runners are made from hard maple, the base is made from a piece of mdf, and the fence is just made from some 5/4 #1 pine I had laying around, the back fence is made with a scrap piece of tiger wood.
This sled measures 24’’ deep (giving me 21-1/2’’ of cut capacity) by 26’’ long
The miter sled also has an mdf base and maple runners, the fence is made from a scrap piece of cabinet grade plywood. This sled measures 21’’ by 21’‘
