This crosscut sled is a combination of ideas presented by Steve Ramsey http://youtu.be/69t6MFCUobw and William Ng http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=UbG-n--LFgQ . The sled is 43” x 26” allowing me to cut large panels. Its adjustable stop block follows Steve’s plan allowing me to reproduce cuts easily. The knob was created by hand using 3/4” plywood and a hole saw. Thanks to William’s excellent 5 cut instructions, I was able to fine tune this sled to be accurate to less than 1/128” over the entire face. I also employed his idea to create a guard out of plexi glass for easy visibility while cutting. A good coating of paste wax ensures that it slides smoothly. I have been extremely pleased with how precise my cuts have become on recent projects.
