This is my adaptation of Steve Maskery’s Crosscut Sled (Workshop Essentials 3 http://www.workshopessentials.com/ ).
The base is 1/2” MDF, 24” x 24”. Thanks to the telescoping fences, I can crosscut stock to just under 60”, and can safely handle panels up to 24”. I still need to order a left-handed rule tape to attach to the fence. With a tape in place, I should be able to get accurate length cuts up 22” with the flip stop.
I used maple and oak to make the telescoping fences, the flip stop, the runner that fits my table saw’s miter slot and the diamond-shaped keys between the fence sections and the base.
