I retired a crosscut sled I built about ten years ago. That was months back and had been putting off making another. It will be nice to again have one in the shop.
The fence is from the sled I made previously. It’s three hard maple boards laminated together. Even after ten years of abuse, rattling around in the back of my truck and probably getting soaked from time to time, it remained true. All it needed was a cleanup on the planer and jointer.
The sled is 3/4” MDF. I made it with zero clearance inserts which I hope will enable me to utilize the sled for different blades including dado cuts. I’ll only know how well that will work out after it goes thru some paces. It has a shop-built sliding stop and pencil holder made from black walnut. I’ll add a sight glass to the stop and tape measure on the track for rough cuts.
