Been needing to make one of these for a while and finally got around to it.
1/2 birch ply as base
2×4 scraps that have been well acclimated to the shop and were straight grained and stable for the fences.
back fence is spruce i think, the front fence is white pine 2 piece laminated together, blade guard is a SYP 2×6 scrap ( darker piece has been around for a while.)
miter guaides are ripped from a piece of oak flooring that were already perfectly sized for the slots
rubbed down with some BLO
while applying the BLO i found a surprise…
not sure how well it shows but it is a smiley face..
i got lucky or was very attuned with my Chi. When i first put the front fence on i got it dead on the first try according to my 5 cut method and my digital calipers.
my baby panel sled which i made first.. all i really had to do was mount a miter bar.. was a piece i made for a jig for my circular saw that didn’t work out.
