I’ve been wanting to make a crosscut sled for quite some time and finally got around to it. I found this particular design with the internal guide fence in a book by Jim Tolpin called Table Saw Magic. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it. He has lots of tips and tricks including cutting circles on the TS. I also want to thank Todd for his input and pointing me in the right direction.
The sled is about 24” x 18”. It’s made from leftover ply and oak. I bought the 48” track on clearance from Woodworkers Supply for $6.99. The adjustable internal guide is a really nice addition that I’m sure I will get plenty of use from. The sled in the book has removable inserts for using with dado blades which I plan to add in the future, but I shouldn’t need for sometime. It’s nice to finally get this one checked off the list.
Thanks for looking.
