i thought i would make a miter sled out of scrap wood just to see if i could cause i dont have a miter saw . turned out it came out dead on 45 degrees my first picture frame was square so i guess i will use it and not make one out of new wood , just to say i was pleased .i have a question after staining what kind of seal or gloss do u use on project ?

Good sled, & nice picture frame. As for the finish it’s all what you want it too look like, you can go simple with a paste or beeswax, if you want more durable you could use a poly, wipe on requires twice the amount of coats as a brush or spray on, if your impatient like I can be at times use a water based poly, it’s ready to re coat in about 2 hrs. Most likely I would do a satin finish, but that’s me.

Welcome to LJ’s I, will help wherever I can, but only what I know.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Congratulations on an accurate miter sled.
Practice on scrap pieces for your staining as you might need to use sanding sealer first to prevent blotching.
After staining you can spray on lacquer or poly from a rattle can.
Paste wax works as well.
Nice picture frame.
