In the process of building big set of storage cabinets. My 26” x 36” crosscut sled with a single wooden runner just was not cutting in (or at least not as precisely as I would like). So I figured it was time for something bigger. This sled is based on “Ultimate Cross Cut Sled” from FWW. Requirements were that it would crosscut plywood pieces 32”x93” repeatably. Body is made of 3/4” MDF, Fence is 2 layers of 3/4” hardwood plywood with a Aluminum T-slot embedded. Runner is 3/8” x 3/4” x 35” Cold Rolled Steel with 4 tapped holes and a washer attached to lock it into the T-Slot miter slot. Flip down stops are made from scrap hardwood plywood, t-nut and bolt for the Aluminum T-slot. Seems to work alright, but time will tell.
