Crosscut sled

This is a crosscut sled I made off the plans from Eagle woodworking. Nice sled. The miter thingies are different to the ones in the eagle woodworking site. Made from 1/2” birch ply, a couple of piece of oak jointed flat and a bit of pine at the back to keep it altogether. Works pretty nicely, I used ultra high molecular weight plastic for the sliders and they are great, fit nicely into the miter slots and slide nice and smoothly.

I needed to make a new one for my new table saw, so it was nice to make something a bit more sophisticated than I had. The ability to put holddowns in the t-slots is very useful.

That looks like a great plan and a very good build.

This is a nice sled. I have one of these on my list as well and have already printed John’s plan.

You built a nice version of the sled.

Thanks for the post.

Hey Pinkfish! I plan on making the very same sled. I was going to make my workbench first, but maybe I’ll go with the sled first. It’d help with the workbench.

How did those miter arms work out?
