About 2 years ago I posted my Table Saw Sled that is very versatile. Sometimes a dedicated jig actually works better. In making boxes recently I found I would prefer a smaller sled. In cutting the miters for box sides I would wear myself out using my large table saw sled, although using an my insert for miters I could certainly use it. I also wanted to set up my old Unisaw and leave it instead of using my Steel City and having to change back and forth, so my old sled wouldn’t work anyway.
Here is what I came up with. I used 1/2” baltic birch plywood and some ash left over from another job. And of course, to please my fans, I threw in a little bubinga for the stops! The ash is glued up to create the thicker pieces for the front and back fences. The T-track was routed using my Torque Work Centre. (I know, shameless plug)
