My wife brought home a small piece of 3/4 plywood that they had left over from a project at the school she works at. Now thats a good woman who knows I love scrap wood…lol. When I first saw it, I thought it was the perfect size for a miter sled. Anyhow, it has been sitting in my shop for sometime now and yesterday I finally got around to starting on the build. I finally ground those pesky tabs out of the miter slots on my table saw so it was quite a bit easier making the runners this time unlike when I build the crosssut sled. Did the glue up on the runners over night and then finished up on it this morning. It is loosly based on the first build done by Steve Ramsey on his Wood Working Mere Mortals video blog on youtube. The small plywood square is the result of some test cuts I did using it before installing the front and rear rails, and have to say it works as advertised….Thanks Steve.
