Since I purchased my new Rigid tablesaw my old crosscut sled didn’t fit it so I built this:

It measures 36” wide x 24” deep

It is made from 1/2” MDF, 1×4 poplar s4s and oak runners and finally a layer of Masonite

It works a lot more effieciently and used up some scraps that were lying around..

Nicely done.
That should provide you with years of service.

Reminds me of mine Ed, insofar as it is plaine and simple. No exotic hardwoods or fancy curves or adjustable flip stops or such. Might think of installing a strip of hard board to the back fence to define the kerf limits as the softwood fence will tend to get beat up a bit making it harder to accurately line up your cuts.

It’s not a softwood it’s poplar I know it’s not oak but I think it’s still classed as a hardwood spieces..

Do you mean putting a strip on the back of the rear fence??
