Okay, this is technically not a woodworking project but it was project to help with my working with wood. Simple enough. I made a panel cutting sled much like Norm used in a You Tube video I saw. But I cut the oak bottom slide too narrow at the most critical point, right at the back edge. A wiggle in the sled.
I could have cut another oak slide but realized I had something better in the kitchen . . . an old cutting board made out of material similar to UHMV if it isn’t UHMV. So I cut the cutting board up on the table saw, patched up the sled slider and problem solved!
And the cutting board is still usable if slightly smaller. These cutting boards are cheap at any discount store kitchen department so you don’t even have to wait for your UPS from Rockler.
If this is common knowledge, sorry, but for me it was a ‘eureka’ moment in the middle of the night and I couldn’t wait to get up this morning to repair the sled.
