I built these jigs to use on my Delta table saw. They have proved to be very useful. The 90 degree sled was built first. Using 3/4 Birch ply with walnut rails. The zero clearence Dado insert was made from a piece of Coriaun counter top. The cross cut sled was built with 3/4 Ply and walnut rails. I added a stop slide on the top for those repeat cuts and a safety box on the back with safety plexiglass to keep my fingers iin tact. Enjoy. Hard Head.
