I have gone w/o a table saw sled for way too long – I have been thinking about designing a table saw sled that could act as both a cross cut sled and a miter sled and this is what I came up with – being it is a jig that I will be using a lot I pulled out all the stops and tried to make it as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional – I have only been using it for a week or so but I am LOVING it! – it is super accurate and slides like a dream – I have a lot more pictures in my web article if anyone is interested, thanks for checking it out!

Nick, as I stated on Google+ this is a great sled and the most outstanding video instruction I have ever viewed concerning building a quality sled. Added to favorites. Thanks for posting. By the way, great web article and supporting pictures.

Wow. You did a fantastic job. I like the idea of it being both a miter and a crosscut sled. This is a great idea for those of us with small shops. Very nice!

thanks much – that was the original idea is a space saver – I don’t have the smallest of shops (20×20) but I like to make every bit of it count
