I used William Ng's video to build mine. He goes over the 5 cut method and constructs a sled in the video. It doesn’t have any fancy t-tracks or anything, but it’s solid and super accurate.

Another one from AWS. Just put “crosscut sled” in the URL address box and you’ll get several hits. I liked Ng’s video, too.

I have made several. No need to get all fancy. The biggest deal is to be square, so I advise you make the support adjustable. If you are off, you’ll never get your work to look and fit right.

I use a sled every time I crosscut. I wouldn’t think of using the factory miter gauge and don’t want to pay $200 for an after-market.

Thanks for all the links guys. The one I was looking for is the eagle lake site, but all of them have great info!
