I have been using a belt sander to finish end grain cutting boards with horrible results. I finally got around to building a router sled. Wow! what a difference. I finish with my ROS and get a perfect finish every time. I used 3 inch PVC pipe that I had laying around with 1 inch aluminum for the router track. Its not in the picture, but I also have non-slip drawer liner for the bottom. The PVC works great. Runs smooth and flat

Rails seem a little thin. They don’t flex any?
