I’ve been wanting/needing a cross cut sled since I bought my first TS 2 years ago. I finally built it since I sold my MS last week on CL, so I figure I really needed one now!
I made it exactly like William’s YouTube video shows except I used Plywood runners – Maple runners keeps giving me trouble, so I opted to use baltic birch plywood runners, hopefully they’ll hold up.
I used the 5 simple cuts to a perfect cross cut sled. I used a 18”x15” rectangle to square up my sled. It was -.006 off, I don’t own a set of feeler gauges so I left it along, didn’t want to mess it up. Remember that error is over 5 cuts, so the actual error over 18” is probably like .0015 – I can live with that!!!
Hope you enjoy!!!
