im needing to build one of these in the next few weekends.. some good ideas here to consider..
definitely like the idea of building “accessories” to fit it rather then making separate ‘sleds’ for each

thanks for the post.

Hi Partridge,

This is a nice sled. It looks like you are going to really accessorize this one.

Thanks for the post.

Haven’t seen one made in this way. Like the design. The stop would really help.

Unique design – very nice function—-great idea the hardboard on top of the plywood! Got to do that makes a nicer top – thanks for the post.

Great! I like you idea for the adjustable stop. Do you have a plan for adding a stop for shorter cuts?

Very nice, I like the way you did the adjustable stop. I keep talking about building a sled, just have to take the time and get it done. Thanks for the post.
