They don’t need to be fancy to be accurate :)

Here is one I made out of stuff scrounged out of a dumpster – and it looks like it:

It may be ugly, but I’ve used the snot out of it for years, and it’s dead nuts accurate.

Cheers,
Brad

TS sled … one of the most useful shop aides you’ll ever make and use.
Like others already said don’t need to be fancy just need to be dialed in for accuracy. Many methods used to achieve this accuracy are shown on U tube. My favorite is the “4-Cut Method,” sometimes referred to as the “5-Cut Method” ... easy to perform and very accurate.

My suggestion is to build at least 3 different sizes of table saw sleds. Mine allow me to cut everything from sides for small wooden boxes to cabinet carcass sides. They’re easy to build, and as shown here, help you use wood scraps you have lying around the shop productively.
Based on what your current projects are, you’ll figure out the dimensions you need for the 3 sizes.
