Well soon after I moved in to the new shop late last fall I traded for a bigger table, new saw means need a new miter sled. Well I put it off as long as I could and bam, I got an order for (4) custom picture frames. So I made a new miter sled and it the best one I have made to date. I tried to make the frames with my miter saw and just was not good enough so I had to make the new one and I am glad I did. I made these from red oak, the grains were awesome in these pieces. Finished with a clear gloss Poly.
