That’s an awesome sled. I built a basic crosscut sled and used the “5 cut test” to ensure a fair degree of accuracy.
What did you do to ensure the 45 degree faces were accurate?

I too have built a basic cross cut sled and had to make the fence adjustable to get a perfect square with the 5 cut method. Did you nail the set up the first time or is there adjustments that can be made to get perfect 45’s ?

Good idea, but how much cross-cutting width do you have with it? Doesn’t look more than a few inches which I guess if you’re doing just picture frame stock is all you really need.

That is a really innovative way to multitask the use of a miter sled and a cc sled. Great job and way to think outside the box!

That charged me up! I have “two” sleds in a tiny shop. Your little gem will buy me some wall space possibly… Hmmm… Nice incorporating two into one. Looks fantastic! Nice work and thanks for sharing with us.

I like the 2 pieces of plywood as a blade guard rather than a 2×4 per usual.
