I started out making the Crosscut Sled as in ShopNotes Vol.17, #99… Page 24.

I was doing OK, except that the one in the magazine was made for a Right Tilt Blade…
... Mine is a Left Tilt; therefore, I dropped many of the features that I liked and it resulted in more of a straight vanilla Sled.

It does have an extension that can be added for longer material…

Here are the pictures taken…

I like the extension. They make a left tilt? Just kidding. I bought into the right hand concept, and still try to lean left when cutting. Old habits.
