I got tired of the quickly made sleds I had kicking around and made a nicer version. This sled is made of baltic birch and oak fences. I used 3/4×3/8 aluminum t-track for runners in the tablesaws’s miter slots. I used t-track so I do not have to worry anout wood movement season to season. The miter attachment has mdf with baltic birch on top and an oak blade cover. The miter attachment bolts into to 1/4-20 tee nuts mounted and countersunk under neath. The star knobs thread into the tee nuts and secure the miter in place. the miter is in the “middle” of the sled as a board can extend past the bottom crosscut fence. I had some shellac mixed up already so just gave a quick coat to protect. All in all cost me about $40 but it should be around for years to come.
