Here is a crosscut sled I made a few weeks ago.
I just wanted a simple zero clearance sled.
I make a lot of 24”square table tops so I made this sled large enough-and awkward enough-to accommodate that. I also made the sled 24” to the right side of the blade for easy measuring.
The sled is made from 1/2” plywood with some 3/16 masonite I had laying around for the zero clearance.
I don’t need any fancy stops or anything. Just a clamp and some scrap is all I needed.
Only took a couple of hours to make and has probably saved me that much time already. I’m not a big fan of sliding miter saws for accurate work….. don’t know why I waited so long to build this!!!
