This is a straight line cutting jig for the table saw I created. I took several ideas from a couple different places and came up with my own design.

forgive the silly question, but what does it do?

Do you measure your material off of the edges of the jig?

Sorry for the lack of info. The clamps hold down a peice of wood on the top of the sled. Expose the end of the wood just enough to cut a little bit from top to bottom of the peice. the sled has a datto down the center of it, as you push it through the datto you are “jointing” with the table saw. It is a very effective way to joint on the table saw and very accurate.
When I made it, I had it overhang the saw blade when it was in the datto channel and ran it through the saw blade the first time, giving you a perfectly straight and accurate jig. Once one side is done you are done with the jig. Install the fence and cut to width. Very nice if you dont have a jointer!

I made one similar to your design and call it a tapering jig, but it can be used for more than tapering.

Ah, so it’s a cross cut sled with lots of sliding hold downs. Got it!
How do those home made hold downs work for you? I just found the pattern yesterday, and I’d like to make some of my own.
