Does it float ?

I remember a movie about Tom Hanks getting off a deserted island on something not quite as big, and definitely not as nice :-)

Very nice. I would think about a putting a blade guard where the blade exits the sled. It would be awful easy to hang a thumb over the exit side while you are concentrating on the cut.

I like it too. I agree with Bondo. Blade guard and built in traverse stops installed. Can we ‘count’ on you?

by sying traverse stops do you mean stops for how far it slides across the table or end stops for length of panels end to blade

How far it can travel, But even with a stop block half of your blade is exposed, so you kinda need both. At the very least, box in the fence where your blade exits the fence and exposes your hands to to blade.
