First mini project with my new table saw.

My previous table saw was a dewalt 744 so the first project I wanted to do on the new table saw was a large sled that would accommodate larger panels for cabinet making. Along with the 32” rip capacity of the new saw with sled I can now crosscut 28” panels. A MUCH improved situation for me.

Awesome!

I absolutely love that warning tape along the kerf path – great idea.

I gotta tell you Paul, I LOVE the hazard tape. Ive always liked “red zones” for safety but this takes it to a new level! The sled itself looks great and a 28” crosscut is pretty sweet. Im also a big fan of the melamine surface, in any kind of repeat work having the piece go on and off smoothly makes it so much nicer. Are you using clamps for your stop blocks? If so, you could build one that flips up and down for repeat work. Great work!

Welcome to LJs and congratulations on your first project posted.

I will be routing a 48” T Tack into the fence, a stick on ruler, and a stop block. I didn’t have a 4’ track available today when I started.

Thanks for the kind words,

Paul

I have to mention the Hazard Tape also… Not only is it an awesome reminder that the blade can take a bite out of you in a heartbeat, it looks freakin’ awesome! I’ll be building my crosscut sled, though not near the size of yours, soon and I do believe I will have to “borrow” your awesome idea!

t track is just what the fence needs and the ruler will be nice too. As Skins said I woudl expect you to see your idea borrowed.

How thick is the hazard tape? Does it catch the edges of boards as you slide them along the fence towards the kerf?

schuft – It’s very thin, about the thickness of clear plastic wrap that you store food in. A thin coat of poly and boards and panels slide over it without catching.

Got the T-Track routed out and installed with a stop block and ruler. Getting close to done. Put some Past Wax on the bottom of the sled and the saw today.

The 45Lb behemoth glides with a single finger push.
