I just finished this 2 in 1 crosscut sled today! It was suppose to be a 3 in1, but the third part is a tenon jig which I already have. The plan came from Shopnotes, Tools & Jigs: Plan, Tips,Techniques!

Thanks, there were times that it was frustrating for me because the plan “assumed” I knew more than I do, but when I was “stumped” on how to do what they wanted me to do, I paced & smoked until the answer came to me!

Looks great! I’m getting ready to make a new sled, and would love to see more pictures & details. Looks like it adjust to cut miters, etc. but I can’t imagine how that works.
Is that issue of shop notes still available?

Good-looking sled. You can never have enough sleds but what are the other functions? I only see 4 extra T-Nut inserts and that looks like a one piece fence so this can’t be for dado?

It is a crosscut sled, and the fence is two separate pieces that slide together. Then the fence moves apart to do miter cuts. There is a third part, which I didn’t make because I didn’t need it. The third part is a tenon jig! The plans actually called it a 3-in-1 sled, but mine is a 2-in-1 sled because I didn’t make the third part! :-)
