I like this one. Pick whatever size and shape makes sense for you, actually build a few. But that video is the best I have seen on how to build a sled. The only thing I would add is a warning guard on the back of the sled, but you can search around for other ideas for that, there are a few of em.

Micro Jig’s July newsletter highlighted a video on mitering small moldings using a sled I designed for them. The free plans will be released in the August newsletter which should be out any day. If you subscribe, the plans are free.

I like the Incra miter runners. Get you a couple of them and you can make a really nice sled. It’s just about easy to make a combination crosscut and miter sled BTW.
