After hearing so much about cross cut sleds I figured I better give it a go. All I had handy was 3/4 Maple so she’s a tad heavy. However, now that I’ve used it several times, I find it to be a great asset. I did’nt do the 5 cuts like I was supposed to but it’s pretty damned square.

A bit before that I put together a tenon jig. It was a fun project to do and it works well but I find I can cut tenons faster with a piece of plywood clamped to the fence and my stock clamped to it. I apologize for the dorky pictures. My point and shoot is older than I am. Kinda.

Couple of great lookin’ projects. You will come to wonder how you ever got by without a sled. Good job!

Orinmed1. I got the idea from a You Tube posting by Curtis Hajek called “Home made tenon jig part 1 (part 2,3 to follow). I just kinda scaled (faked) the dimensions. As I said it works not to bad, just be damned sure when yer finished your stock is bang on parallel to the blade, otherwise Mucho Problemo.
