Good day,

I had to make legs for my metal lathe table, there is a lot of dados on each legs. I could have made them on my radial saw with my dado blade, but instead I decided to make them on my table saw. So I made myself a sled to do the dados as you can see on the pictures. It is an extremely solid table the way it is built.

Very easy to use and very precise.

Looks like that sled would be useful for many applications. I like the bench design too..

Thanks for sharing

Lovely both the table and the sled.
Best thoughts,
