Table saw sled is 36” wide and 24” deep. Made from 1/2” birch plywood. Fence is positioned using 5-cut method from W. N. Woodworking school such that 5th cut is out by .001” or less. Sled has 1” holes in it so that it can be hung on the wall. Oak runners are glued onto sled bottom, but not screwed, as I have found that screws cause runners to spread and make it difficult to achieve a perfect fit in miter slot. Top-coat lubricant used on sled bottom, runners and saw cast iron surface so the the sled glides with ease.

Nice looking sled. By using 1/2” ply it shouldn’t be a bit lighter than most sleds
