I didn’t post this sled because it is original or different from the one Brianb1 posted awhile back. I posted it just because I think its such a great idea that I didn’t want anyone to miss it. For me it solves 2 problems. I work with only rough cut lumber that I cut down myself and had milled, so I had problems with getting a straight edge to work off of. I also don’t have a very good jointer and this seems to make a perfectly good glue joint as long as I have a good ripping blade and it is set right on 90 degrees. The last picture is the bottom of the sled with Johnson’s paste wax so it will slide easy. Mine is made of oak plywood and oak scraps. It is 60” long and can handle a 10” wide board. If you want to understand how it works or how it is made look at http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95902 or the link provided on that posting.
