This was a great addition to the shop, not really sure how i made it this long without it. 3/4” birch and wanut finished with Briwax. Glad I took the extra time to add the stop block. Thanks to Steve R. for his video on making this.

Welcome to the “sled’rs” club! I built my sled before really understanding how much I would use it. Now, I am using it on every crosscut on sized parts. You are going to love it!

Looks fantastic and functional,. Nice.

....and I’m jealous of your Garage that can fit your shop, and park an 18 wheeler at the same time! ;-)

Great Job! Yes I completely agree with you, why did I wait this long?

Beautiful sled! I have that same table saw, but my sled is not as nice… maybe it’s time to build a nicer one :)
