This is my first Cross-cutting Seld, I have managed to achieve 0.0067” accuracy per inch.
I will live with that for now as I am not going to cut wide boards using this jig.

I used Russian plywood and Mahogony for the fences.

Here is the link for more details about this build, if you like to see more details.

Nice little sled. The way it appears in the photos, though, the flip stop will only work for very thick material?

Thank you Calmudgeon! You are right and for thin materials I can use clamps. But I am thinking to add an extension to the flip stop using a piece of wood fixed with screws to the flip stop.

Wonderful addition to your cutting capabilities. Have one for straight cuts and one for mitered joints. Really speeds the process up and is much more accurate.

Nice work!

So true but my workshop is very limited in space, I use the mitre saw for the mitered cuts for now.

Thank you

The wood crafter, there is a longer stop available, I think kreg it may not reach over the way you have the track set. looks like a nice sled.

I currently have a full sized sled, which is Dubby like in that I can index miters. I plan to make a smaller one soon for just bevels for mitered corner boxes. I like the idea of a sled for a specific purpose rather than multi purpose. The only problem with too many sleds is running out of wall space to hang them, when not in use. :-)

Yes I know, the one I used is designed for the miter saw table, I will try adding an extension to the flip stop! Will figure out a way to that. Anyway thanks for your advise.
