This is more of a testimonial than a project post. I finally got around to building a cross cut sled and a clamp on miter jig. They both work great evidenced by the test frame.

And the reason they work well is all the great advice available from Lumberjocks! The five cut (Ng) method works just like all of you said it would. Say what you want about Facebook but I do just fine with my 66,238 friends here on LJ. The visionaries, creators, and maintainers of this sight are to be commended.

While making the sled, a band saw scrap caught my eye that reminded me of something from my childhood.

After cutting the angled notch in it, I tried it out and it worked just like years ago!

If this should have been a blog rather than a project post, I apologize. I reached my level of technology incompetence years ago and wouldn’t have a clue how to create a blog.

I hope you enjoyed the projects and my ramblings.
