I made this miter sled a while ago but when posting my last project on the Pallet Wood serving trays I remembered I used this to cut the splines in the corners of the trays and thought I might post this also.
It’s made from 3/4” poplar plywood laminated together. The very thick back fence has the top cut at a perfect 45 and another 45 groove cut behind so I can use it to clamp material for cutting splines.
There is a T track that was cut into the fence so I could make and use some stop blocks for both repeatable cuts as well as for lining up where to cut the splines on all 4 corners of a box or tray.
After using it for a while I can say the ONLY thing I would change is to cut the top of the T track a bit deeper as the stops sometimes bind if I loosen them a little too much as the head tilts and gets wedged. other than that, I could not have asked for any more.
And if your interested, here is the build video
