This is my second try at a coping sled. The first coping sled had a 1/4” base and would flex when I applied clamp pressure so this one uses a 1/2” Baltic birch base and does not flex when pressure is applied to the clamps. I designed the sled for 2 1/4” wide rails but they could be up to 5 1/2” wide. I turned the two handles from an old broken broom stick I had laying around and a few plywood scraps too. The clamps are from Harbor Freight and was the only cost. I use a 1 1/4” wide plywood sacrificial backer that is double stick taped on to easily replace it and I use a home made stop block to not route beyond the sacrificial backer. It works great. Last weekend I made two doors for a custom cabinet for a neighbor. Thanks.
