I made this about a year ago I seen it in one of my magazines that I get but I forget which one it was.Like most of us I get 4 or 5 monthly.I have a larger one for large panels but I wanted something alittle smaller with a nice fence and stop.IT is 4ft long and has a box joint jig attachment to go with it.This has been really nice for repettative cuts.

I believe I seen it in an episode of Woodsmith Workshop on the Create Channel. The hardware is from Rockler. Looks good. Thinking of making one for myself.

Never have seen a practical value in a sled.——-??? Does it replace some other tool or what.

Woodsmith shop made that on one of their episodes, I believe you can also get the plans FREE from woodsmithshop.com if I/m not mistaken.

So true Jim I have several also but use this one the most. I made the box joint attachment that came with the plan but have only used it once it is awesome too.
I built my first one 25yrs ago which Norm Abrahm made
