Didn’t feel like going back after the dovetails, today. Stopped by the Depot, and got about five pieces out of the cull bin (my new favorite playground).
Between that, and a ~2’ x 4’ sheet of 1/2” MDF, and a chunk of polycarbonate I had lying around … I seem to have built myself a fairly substantial crosscut sled with the ‘blade guard’ in place.
Bought a 6’ length of 3/4” x 3/4” oak. Ripped it cleanly in half to make the miter sliders.
Bottom and runners have Johnson’s Paste Wax on them.
Top probably won’t.
DID do the Johnson’s thing to the top of the table saw, and its miter slots, too.
Why? I Dunno.
I already had a smaller crosscut sled, and learned just how handy they are, but … bigger IS better ;-)
Thanks for looking….
