I have downloaded the plans from the eagle lakes website and hope to get started on it soon. Yours is a very nice build and I like the pin idea.

Nice neat job on the sled, it looks like you extended the fence(?) . I’d also like to see your outfeed table!!

Jeff, I built that same sled several years ago and it gets used on every project. You did a great job on it and you’ll get a lot of use from it. Enjoy! The Eagle Lake sled instructions were the best I had seen and his method for getting it square was easy and accurate.

That is a great sled. I don’t believe I’ve seen a better one.
