I am officially in love with the crosscut sled!!!
Zero clearance is my best friend now.
Not to mention the ease of cutting pieces the same length.

It cuts more accurate angles than my De Walt 12” compound miter saw… which I need to figure out how to align more accurately.

Thank you all for posting pics of your sled’s on here. I think I looked at all of them. :)

Me too and I still dont have a crosscut sled. The time I have taken to look at all the sleds I could have built three of my own. LOL
Thanks for the post.

I need to break down and build on too! I used to have one but it got wet one day and I haven’t built another. I remember how useful it was but I just haven’t built it again, thats near the top of my list now.

Good job with yours, simple.

This, and a good miter sled, are probably my next two table saw projects. I’m just trying to decide which features I want to incorporate.

Finally! I have that same saw and have been second guessing making a sled – the table is so small compared to the cabinet style saws that I started thinking that maybe I just didn’t have enough space for it to be usable. Seeing yours helps me see how useful it could be on ‘our’ saws.
Great work!
