This project is straight out of Wood Magazine. I didn’t make a single change, except I made the knob rather than buy one. As a beginning woodworker it was a great project for me. I made several mistakes which I had to think through, and it called for several techniques which I’d not yet practiced. Also, my table saw is a 1969 Craftsman I inherited from my Godfather (Thanks, Larry!) which has long lost any safety equipment. This design gives me some degree of protection during cross-cuts, which was a big concern for me and lead me to choose this design as opposed to other sled designs I’ve seen.
So, what are the merits or detriments of table saws vs. chop saws for cross-cuts?
