I just finished this crosscut sled. I used 3/4 inch mdf and some cherry scrap I had left over from a cutting board I am working on. I ripped the sliders to height and then crept up on the width with a thickness planer. I used Johnson paste wax on my table saw and in the miter slots and this sled works great, no slop and slides perfect. Back to work now on a cherry endgrain cutting board.

Yes I made one this weekend my self. Mine is so not pretty at all. Half inch plywood and 2×4’s. But it is for doing dado’s on shelves that will look nice when completed. Nice job on yours. Oh I think mine is lighter than yours though. Particle Board is very heavy.
