A little over a year ago when I first got into woodworking I stumbled across a video series describing how to build a Super Sled. I was so impressed with its function and knew it was a must for my shop. Well, a couple weeks ago I took the plunge and built the shop tool I been wanting for a long time.
First off I got to give massive amount of thanks to John Nixon for his extremely useful video series he has posted on his site Eagle Lake Woodworking. After watching the videos (a couple times to be honest…lol) I was able to fly through this project in one weekend. It was a busy weekend, but i got it done.
I built the standard sled as John explained on his site, but also Incorporated another idea I seen from Mark Whitsitt & FreddyS... A jig to cut 45’s without having to change the blade angle. I like many other chase after the ever elusive “Perfect 45”. I can say after my first test box I am now closer than I ever have been before. It is definitely a happy place to build a dream tool… and it actually working!....lol
Thanks for taking the time to check out my Super Sled. Hope maybe it sparks a light in someone else’s eyes like it did mine over a year ago. My one word of advice…. If you think you could use it… You can! I should of built this a long time ago.
