I made a smaller crosscut sled for my job site table saw. It does a great job and makes cutting small pieces much safer and more accurate. I used two Incra brand miter guides on the bottom and a few sections of T-track for the hold down clamps and stop block. The bottom is 1” plywood and the cross boards oak. The stop block is made of cherry wood.

Nice work. Have to make a new one for my second saw. Going to have a few upgrades as seen here and others that have posted.

This is a fine shop made sled. It will be great for your shop.

Small is good, you may find you’ll not need a bigger one. Those Incra guides are slick as an icy road, so adjustable.

Thanks for posting.

I added a blade guard on the back for a little safety. Decided to have a little fun with it instead of a boring solidd block.

Love that guard, really nice touch, and makes a sled so much safer.

Enjoy it.
