I have completed the construction of my new sled (pic’s to follow when finish is completed).
24”x36” with Maple runners.
Based on your previous advice I have used 1/2” birch plywood for the base and used a lamination of same 1/4” birch plywood for the fences.
Using the 5 cut method I’m at .003 error on a 12” cutoff. Very happy with that.
Using shellac is new to me. I applied a thin coat after sanding with 220 grit and then sanded with the same grit after the first coat had dried. She is smooth as a baby’s bottom!
Is that good enough or do I need a few more coats?
I live in central California where we don’t have the high humidity but I don’t want another warped sled.
Your advice please.
