Here’s my version of the super sled, credit for the design goes to Eagle Lake Woodworking http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Super-Sled-Crosscut-and-Miter-Sled.aspx.

I made the base out of 3/4” ply, the front fence is 2 layers of 3/4” ply glued together for a super strong and straight fence. I put the Incra T-Track Plus on top of the front fence, it’s a T-Track and scale built in. The back fence is a piece of hickory I had around. The runners are maple.

I made just one of the miter fences for now.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice… crosscut sleds are very handy… and that is a good design… very versatile with the miter fence and potential for tenoning fixture.

That’s a really good looking sled you have built for yourself.

I keep meaning to redesign and up grade mine but it keeps turning out square and true panels so I figure, why reinvent the wheel?

Nice works, well done

Nice. The angle of the picture kinda messes with my head and makes the sled look extra tall.

Very nice. I just finished the same one. Although I used, used wood so it’s not near as pretty. I did use the five cut fence aligning method and my cuts are going to be dead on now.

Thanks for the kinds words everyone :)

Lumberjoe, I have thought of a blade guard for the back. I didn’t put the handle in the middle because I like to keep my hands away from that area. I’m trying to think of a handle or handles that keep my hands away from the blade area.

Flippedcracker, It is pretty big 24”x48”, a little bigger that the original but I really like the size.
