Here is a new crosscut sled design I came up with. It has a unique cross bridge that connects the two sides of the sled. It allows cuts up to 36” wide, and 24” deep for any cut, and up to 36” deep in situations where the panel can slide under the cross bridge.

Two videos to check out:

Nice design Willie! I like the bridge concept and the knob for a handle.

Thanks Steve,

It seems to be working well and offers pretty good capacity for cutting furniture parts and cabinet panels.

Thanks again

Willie — Nice innovation. I imagine that the bottom of the pipe is a bit higher than the highest saw height.

Hi Don,

That’s exactly right. Even at max blade height, the cross bar clears the blade.

Thanks!

My brain wants to put the steam-punk style handles on the pushing side so I can have something substantial to hold onto while pushing through the cut. I would have put a second set of piping behind the fence—or would that be a bad idea?

See, this is what I love about posting projects. Someone tweaks the idea or comes up with something that suits their needs. I’m not sure how it would work, but it would make a nice handle.

Thanks for weighing in.
