This is just a quick crosscut sled I whipped up (I’m still in the “building the tools to build the tools” phase) after I got the new tablesaw. Its about as simple as it gets, the base is a slab of 18” x 36” x 3/4” plywood with some 2×4 scraps as front and rear rails, and a block of 2×4 scraps glued together on the back end as a blade guard (and counterweight). I used some spare lengths of mini t-track for runners. Works out nicely, it definetly makes life easier, a little farther down the line I plan to make a new version with t-track in the base and fence for hold downs and stops, and a removable sacrificial strip in the middle.
