I made this sled a few months ago, and has been extremely useful ever since. It is made entirely from 3/4” plywood for the base and the front/back. The only difference is that the front/back handles are made from two pieces glued together and shaped to what you see there. I attached the slides with screws after I milled them to exactly 3/8” x 3/4” wide to fit in the slots on my saw. I obviously recessed the screw heads.
The only thing I would like to do now, is to put a piece of T track on the blade facing side of the main handle/fence so that I can attach hold downs and other jig fixtures. I may just make another one that’s smaller with that in it, but either way. That’s it. There are many video’s on youtube that show how this is made, but I used the woodwhisperer’s video and his 5 cut method to make it as perfect as I can. Unfortunately it’s still .020” off over 96” which makes me a little frustrated, but oh well.
