For a long time I have wanted to make a Miter Sled for my Saw Stop. Up to this point I have used the miter gauge on the TS and this meant that I had to use my triangle or protractor to make perfect 45° cuts. I found this on the Wood Smithshop and they said that there was a free plan on their web site. I downloaded the plans and here it is. The plan gives an additional option of wing extensions using Aluminum angle. I Love This Sled, it is right on the money. Don’t know what took me so long to make one…. I highly recommend this if you have need of one go to the www.woodsmithshop.com click on the free plans button then look for season 5, episode 511. I have made several of their projects from free plans and they are very good.

Thanks for looking any and all comments are welcome ;)

Love it. With T-track too. Sweet.

The handle on the back is so cool.

Picture frames in the future?

Great sled, Chuck. I have been thinking about one too. you made a real beauty. I like the T tracks you put in, then you can set a gage to make a bunch of pieces exactly the same!! That looks like a boughten one! Professional!!!!

One thing you might want to try is to make a set of gages with a 45 degree angle on them. That way if you are cutting a frame piece with a 45 on both ends, it “nests” more accurately against the long flat of the angle into a pocket instead of trying to use a flat gage against a sharp corner that might break down a bit if you hit it too hard! I have a couple on my miter saw that put the miter lengths right on!.................Jmi

Somebody was really thinking here to design it, but you had to build it. Looks like it could do the repetitive cutting very well. Thanks for posting. I’ll have to check it out

The Handle and the Wings really make this sled a step above the rest. Well Done!
