First one I have ever made. All done with scraps. Base is 3/4 walnut ply with the runners walnut. Added t-tracks for hold downs or what not. Basically made it to ease me in cross cutting planks that are normally to long to handle by myself.

Looks like a good sled that will provide years of service.

Cross cut sleds sure do make life a lot easier. Good job. You can never have too many jigs or clamps.
