Quick and dirty crosscut sled – what a difference this makes on accuracy (not to mention safety). Should have made this ages ago.

Thanks for looking.

Looks neither quick nor dirty, but rather the most handsome sled I have seen. Well done!

Looks great!!!!

I need to make two of those, one for 90s and one for 45s. Just made some boxes and could not get the 45s to match because I was sliding a small board and it was binding.

I never really needed a cross cut sled until I started making cabinets for my kitchen redo. Now that I have it, I have no idea how I worked without it. Nice work.

Very cool! Next to my table saw my sled is the most important too in my shop. I’ve always made them with the blade centered but my next one is going to off centered like yours.

Very nice TS upgrade,probably the best upgrade to a saw one can do IMO. The design and construction look rock solid and it is a great addition to performing several cutting operations we wood workers come up against. It will make Your life that much easier and safer when called upon. Your design is a good choice and easily adaptable to some add-on,s such as a removable Lexon shield spanning both fences over top of blades path( a great safety feature) ! Once again great job on a popular fixture !

Great looking sled. I have made one, very crude, but it works. I think I will make a new one like your design though. It looks terrific…Ron
