You might just be a woodworking addict when… you start doing projects between projects… layout work on a crosscut sled and some chisel racks i knocked out on bandsaw while laying out the afore mentioned sled…lol Up next behind the sled is beginnings of a bandsaw fence as well. You might be a woodworking addict when you keep one miter sawset up for fine cuts and one set up for rough cuts. Not to mention the fact ya think you need two miter saws in first place…lol

OK, I have 2 mitre saws. One for big stuff and one for small stuff. I always have some project going on. Couldn’t be happier! Keep it going!

I’m with Monte on the miter saws. I figure all of us need 2 more miter saws. Rough Small, Rough Big, Fine small, Fine Big. ;)

My opinion – if you are going to do it again and again – let the jig do it for you. Nicely done.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

I “had” two miter saws, as well. A Bosch SCM for me and a Porter Cable miter saw that I loan out to my kids. Haven’t seen that PC in over a year.

Oh the shame! I’m trying to recover after keeping 5 sanders ready with 5 different grits, and now I see I could fit in another miter saw! Now, I’m never gonna get better…..

Ooops forgot to mention….the piece laying behind the sled is for bandsaw fence. It has a handle cut into it to help make it easier to throw if it doesnt help eliminate some of that pesky bandsaw drift…lol

The runners for those narrow, partial “T” tracks were a real pain to cut and fit…looked easier in the video…lol

those pesky slots or whatever on the tablesaw used to give me fits, (if that’s what you’re referring to; the miter gauge slots). i filed off the little lips on mine and it made it a lot easier when i built my crosscut sled. i tried to fit runners for it before doing that, and it was really hard. i don’t have an expensive tablesaw, so filing off those pesky things were not an issue. i’m glad i did
i’m half asleep, not sure that was on topic orekmade sense, hahahaha
