I’ve been wanting to make a dedicated miter sled for the table saw for a long time. Finally got around to it. Made of some scrap 3/4” fir plywood and some reclaimed birch 2×4’s, this sled can handle boards up to 16” wide. It is dead flat to the table and the blade set at a perfect 45 degrees measured with my Wixey tilt box. The runner is a scrap of wenge glued and screwed to fit tightly in the miter slot. I secured the fence with a screw on the right end and then made an elongated slot on the left end. Some slight adjustments to get the fence to a perfect 90 degrees to the blade. Works terrific! I used a scrap of bloodwood to remind me where NOT to put my hand as I push the sled thru the cut! :)
Thanks for looking and comments welcome!
