From my basic woodworking knowledge everybody refers to the table saw sled as an indispensable tool in the shop., so naturally I decided to build one as my second project.
The base is made of 3/4 plywood and the fences are made with a standard 2×4 squared off on the thickness planer.
I also made a 45 degree fence to make easy cuts at that angle and 2 pencil holders within easy reach.
I found it a bit challenging to get the fence perfectly square with the blade, but after a few test cuts and a lot of finagling with the feeler gauge, I got it almost dead on (0.002 inches @ 10ft … I think I can live with that!)
Overall I am extremely satisfied with it… Later on I think I will add a blade guard at the end of it… or perhaps I’ll just build a new one with more advanced features!
As always, your questions, comments, and constructive criticisms are always welcome!
Thanks for looking!
