This is the jig I use most. Plus they are easy to make. Between this and the cutoff sled it looks like you have got your saw ready for action.
Thanks for the post.

I have one too. The only addition I made was a couple of cutouts to lessen the weight. Usually just the panel alone is heavy and I needed to make it easier to feet into and out of the blade.

I use mine all the time, and even staple in wood strips to use it as a tapering jig.

I haven’t yet tried to do a panel sled. Mainly my stumbling block is the sequence of construction. While it is probably one of the simplest jigs to make, how does one assemble it so that the back edge guide is perfectly square with the sawblade.
Do you attach the miter slot piece first, cut the panel then align the edge guide?

I attached the miter bar to the panel and then cut the panel. Then I mounted the fence with just a couple of screws and did some sample cuts to verify that the fence mounting was square to the blade. Once I was satisfied that everything was square I added more screws to permanently mount the fence. Not sure if this is the best method, but that is how I put mine together. If I was building another, I might use come kind of T Slot setup for mounting the fence so I could more easily adjust the fence if I ever needed to in the future.
