Since I have found the crosscut sled I built some time back to be very useful, Decided it would be good to build a mitre sled. With inspiration from many others especially MrWhite, I came up with this design using 2 screws and glue. The base is some old paneling, maple for the runners and oak for the fence and braces. I put two recycled old scrap pine 2by4’s down the middle under the oak top piece to give the sled some rigidity and provide a blade guard. I couldn’t see the need for a brace across the leading edge as in some many others. It might be something I’ll learn to regret, but it seems solid and stable right now. fences are 16”.
