I’ve needed to build a sled for a long time…glad I did, it’s a good time and materials investment. I love the stop blocks – just measure to the kerf, tighten the stop block and cut….the massive right side fence is a screw up. I meant the extra for the left side of the fence but hey, use it and see if it works. SYP fences, Kreg aluminum runners, maple stop blocks and tung oil. BTW….using Marc Spagnulo’s 5 cut method, it was .003” out of square….leave it alone!!! Thanks for looking.

That’s a big sled! Good job, keep up the good work! A good TS sled is nice to have even if you have a CMS, or a RAS.

That’s a good size sled, I thought the 5 cut method was devolved by William Ng ?

Ng may have developed it. I just learned it from Marc.
The sled’s bigger than most that I see, but so far, I like having the room on both sides. If I’m using the sled, the fence is non-functional so it doesn’t really matter if the sled’s 20 inches wide, or 40. Larger just gives me more options.

Great sled! Personally, I think having that extra on the right side is well worth it. While I do have a 38in left side on my sled and less on the right, there are times I could use more sled on the right. It will come in handy.
