The super sled is finally done. Works as well as it looks. I used it to make the blade shield. Miter corners 45 degrees perfect. Bottom sled is 1/2” oak ply. All other parts are solid red oak. This project only cost me 35 dollars. For most the materials I already had left over from other projects. This project took my about 24 hours to build. Taking my time to make it very precision. I am going to make some template triangles for speed setup. Make those from 1/4” MFD. Tomorrow night I am going to make a wall bracket to hang the sled on the wall when not in use. I keep going back into the garage to look at it. I am so proud of this sled. It really is solid pretty and perfect to use. The miter gage that came with my Delta Table Saw is now retired. If you have a table saw. You need one of these. Wish I had made this six months ago. Ok fellows and ladies let make some shaving.

You should be proud of that sled. Looks great! Do you have track buried under the ply or will it hold the T bolts without?

This is a great looking sled. This really is one of those tools that you wonder why you did not build it sooner after you start using one. This will be a nice addition to your shop tools.

Thanks for the post.

That is really nice! Your router work looks great.

I swear I could make jigs all day. Every time I make one it helps me learn some new technique.

Thanks for the pics.

Very nice Mark! Your blade guard is a nice addition to the super sled. Your sled and the accessories look very precisely made, and should provide you years of good accurate cutting. Nice job!

Yep, you have to have a jointer and a planer to make a precision sled.
And a table saw without a sled is like …………………
Any heaux , info on dimensions would be appreciated.
