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.

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