3/4” MDF Base, with MDF Skids and Beech fence. Someone on this forum had posted a video demonstrating how to calibrate the fence, but I used the “insert some shims into the slot + t-square” method and my fence was dead on the first time. I hardened the skids with some Cyanoacrylate glue after fitting them. I left some clearance on the backside of the fence for a blade guard, but haven’t got around to it yet (I’m crossing my fingers while i still have them ;)
I finished the bottom of the sled with some Johnson’s paste wax. The grain on the fence was pretty straight, although i used the same wood in my shooting board fence which ended up moving with this last cold snap.
I can’t believe i’ve gone this long w/o making one of these. In the process of making it i found out my extension wings weren’t flush, so i had to do some “adjustment” (/deadblow). ;)
