I don’t usually post pictures of my shop made jigs. As they are not much to look at. But I thought I would post my new table saw sled. Made from ½ inch baltic birch plywood. 30×48 inches over all, just under 26 inches front to back between fences. 20 inches on the left side of the blade, 28 inches the right side of the blade. 1¼ inch poplar dowel handles. set into the fence but not the base. Harbor freight hold down clamps. The ¼ tempered hardboard zero clearance insert, is replaceable. As I also intend to use this as a dado sled.

I like the low fence and the dowel handles. I feel that the sled pushes and pulls better from a lower center of force. If that makes any sense.

Nicely made. I’d probably forget and cut it right in two.

good looking sled and fence will help you make you feel good while making good looking cuts…

I like your replaceable hardboard insert… never thought of that…

And I get the lower center of gravity for the push pull… my back fence is high and I push down not through a cut.

… and I don’t know know if that makes sense either… but…

Nice sled but you should always post your jigs to show me what I need for my shop.
