After watching some videos and reading about the greatness of using a tablesaw crosscut sled I decided to make one. I took some scrap red oak and cut it for the rails as everything I read said to use a hard wood for the rails. I used 3/4 plywood for the base which after placing the rails in the miter slots with glue on top I placed the base on the tablesaw with a heavy toolbox on top to act as a clamp. The next day I used my handy 9.99 tapered drill bit and countersink set from HF to attach the front and back fence. The front fence being square is not a deal breaker but you must take your time with the back side to ensure its square. I highly recommend watching this video to learn how to do this. I now use this in place of my miter saw as its much quicker then going back and forth and much safer.
