This is the crosscut sled that I made. I bought a sheet of 3/4 plywood and had the store cut it into 4 pieces. I used one 24×48 piece for the bottom. I cut 2 pieces 6×48 and face glued them together for the rear fence. I then cut this down a little and rounded over the top and ends. I secured it to the bottom using an adhesive and some countersunk screws. The front fence, or stiffener is just a leftover piece of 2×6 that I mitered and rounded the edges on. I also glued and screwed this to the bottom. The runners are some 3/4 oak that i ripped down to 3/8 or just under It’s not fancy, but it will do the job of letting me cut long and wide stock. Thanks for looking.
