Second cross cut sled. I reviewed a plethera of sleds prior to building this one. Thanks for the great ideas and post, based on fellow LJs post Super-Sled II by MontanaBob and Walnut and Birch crosscut sled by Brad. My first sled had plywood runners and was fairly basic. This sled made from 3/4 birch ply, Hickory front and back and Walnut block. Hardware from Rockler. Wipe on urethane and waxed.
Changes for the next sled – make hold down t-slots stop short of back support so bolts for hold downs can be removed, possibly phenolic faced plywood.
Things I like – the slight quarter round at the base of back fence to allow for saw dust without misaligning wood, hold downs, sliding stop for repetitive cuts (beats the block of wood and clamp on last sled)
I am considering adding a measuring tape
