Nice sled. It is always better to have the board being cut ride on a sled rather than the table. Less chance for movement in relation to the blade.

Looks great, and functional! One safety suggestion if I may… add a ‘trap block’ to the fence closest to you where the blade protrudes after you finish your cut. Look on my project list and my most recent project (also a sled) to see what I mean.
