Needed a panel sled for my new tablesaw. Got the idea from a Shopnotes article

I like the idea of the panel sled over a full sled but this looks like it would be very “tippy” for larger cuts?? I’m sure you have some way to support the section off the table for these??

Belg1960- @ over 31” wide you would think that. but even with that width its still extended only 12 inches wider than tabletop, leaving 19 inches on surface of tablesaw. It’s kinda hard to see but the yellow line on the sled is in line with the edge of the tabletop. i can probably do at least 34 inches safely without worrying about it being “tippy.” Although at that length the stop would have to be removed.

Ernie, I should have looked at the larger images. I thought the sled was hanging over at the silver line. I might build one myself, I have some of the runner material already.

Belg1960- i wiould suggest using a hardwood for the fence instead of plywood as i did. there is a considerable flex if you use ply

This sled turned out nicely and will be a great addition to your shop.
