Aftermarket sliding tables vary in robustness, footprint
and price. There are some inexpensive ones that
may not impress you or make your woodworking
any more accurate. One thing they do accomplish
is you can mount a 4’ or longer fence on the sliding
table and have stops considerably further away
from the blade than would be practical with a
miter gauge, and of course more crosscut capacity
than you can reasonably get with a miter gauge.
A sled of such capacity is buildable, but as size
and capacity of the sled increases the sled itself
can get pretty cumbersome and prone to damage
in the shop.

If you’re considering upgrading to a format style
slider, then I recommend it wholeheartedly for
cabinet and furniture making.
