After much procrastination, )which seems to be a common thread when it comes to building crosscut sleds), I finally took a few hours and finally built a sled. I borrowed ideas and inspirations from several designs. Now that I have the sled, it rarely leaves my table saw. Now I don’t think I could work without it!

Nice sled. I have to agree about how useful these are. I have a miter saw, but I get cleaner and more accurate cutes with my sled.

Your right I have made a small one for Christmas boxes and some times need a larger one for up and coming projects. I need inspiration to make it and find a place to store in when not in use. I can see using it a lot if you had one that was large enough to do all your jobs. Then discard the small one. (Wait a minunite. do woodworkers ever discard a fixture of this type.) The reasons I use for not making it is I want all the bells and whistles and study everyone’s for added items I can use. Of course I never stop looking.
I like yours with the bars for afixing stop blocks. As Dusty noted the handle is Great….
