Ok, I have been wanting a little something “extra” to help with cutting those end grain cutting boards accurately, so I played around this afternoon and made this cool fence and sled for making repeating cuts of the same size, just like the cutting boards. It’s 3/4 in plywood and just scrap 2×4s jointed and planed square. the fence rides on the 2 end “rails” of the sled and I drilled holes for a couple 3/8 in dowel rods in each side to dedicate this sled for 1 5/16” cuts for my end grain boards. I even got a little fancy and made T handles for the ends of the dowels! I am very happy with this unit and it cuts with great accuracy. Very little $ invested in it.
