My first miter sled was build mostly as a test. It was inspired by David Marks aluminum miter sled.
It’s nothing fancy, has a 9mm (11/32) plywood base, 3/4 marine plywood fences, T-track on each fence for blog stops (for t-track I use aluminum curtain tracks), 2 de-sta-co hold down clamps sitting on two blocks, a center from Swedish pine wood as a blade guard and another piece of the same pine to the other end. The sled is running on two hardwood track bar pieces of oak.
The base is a bit narrow, as that was the left over ply I had at the moment and because I consider it as a test sled I didn’t mind, but it turned out to be so good an accurate that I’m still using it. If I ever need a bigger one I can always build another.
