This cross cut sled is made out of…you guessed it…fall-off quarter sawn white oak and MDF. I used a router to soften the edges, which makes it more ergonomic. The QSWO was a 4” x 4” piece that was full of knots, so it was perfect for this use. I have gotten some comments about using “furniture grade” lumber for my jigs! Well, I have read that quarter sawn lumber is less apt to be affected by changes in temperature and moisture and will remain “true” , so it makes for perfect jig material, if you have it laying around, of course!
Also, please note the slide-outs that I built for my saws. If I chose, I can pull them out and use the saws where they sit!
