I still consider my cutting board that I just finished my first real project, but here are a couple of things I did for the shop. The crosscut sled passes, gets me by. But ultimately I need something larger and nicer. The lumber rack I got from DGunn, and you can see it here. Works great.

By the way, that blade sticking up through the sled is only 9”. A friend gave me his old ‘74 Rockwell 9” contractor’s saw. Pretty cool.

Greetings Scott:.. You’ll wind up needing more than one sled….. trust me…. one size don’t fit all….. The project you’ll work on will depend on the size sled you use…small for small…. large for large….... ‘nuff said!!!!!!!

Howdy, neighbor were just a stones throw from you over in lake corpus.(on second thought I might need a catapult to reach you, texas is one big state.) I like your sled you built, and your cutting board will be great for all those texas bbq’s we are known for. speaking of bbq’s gotta go, will be watching for more of your projects.
