Well, I finally made a crosscut sled. After years of woodworking, I can’t believe I didn’t make one sooner. Did a lot of research and incorporated features that appealed to me.
- T-Tracks on the base, T-Track Plus on top of the fence, Adjustable fence, Polycarbonate Guard, Miter fences, and a Long Reach Stop that can be out to either end.

First class sled you made and you will enjoy it every time you use it and will find more and more uses for it ,
well done
Built my first one thirty five years ago and several since and would not know how to live without one .

Can you post plans for the sled? I would love to make one.

Also, can you use your miter gauge with the sled?

Great project.

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated. I’ll post my original plans, did some ‘tweaking’ to the measurements during the build. Trying to figure out how to add a PDF to the project gallery.

Very nice. I would like to know how you build the fence w T track and meas. tape. I bought the T track from Kreg I think but have not added it to my current sled.

I incorporated the T-Track Plus from INCRA. I also used t-nuts to attach everything to the base.

Here’s the rough plans I came up with; had to adjust a few measurements during the build.

An unbelievable sled my friend. I’m officially jealous of the T-tracks, the mitre fences and the long reach stop. Thanks also for the well made plans. May have to upgrade again. I certainly will bookmark.
