Project Information

Just a simple miter sled jig for my picture frames. Used some scraps from shop and a couple of clamps for hold downs. This is version two as the first one wasn't satisfactory. I didn't even sand off the layout lines. Guess I'm getting lazy in my ole days. Haa Haa.

Haven't posted anything in a while as I have started preparing the ground for my new shop. I have never did a blog but might try it when I get a little farther along.

Yep. I'm thinking something like this when I re-build my miter sled.

Out of curiosity, where do you put you hands when you're using it?

Hi Dwayne:
Look good, and the best part you keep it simple and inexpensive. I also liked your mallet.

That looks very nice and it's similar to what I had.
Very well done

I did the same thing but I used 1/4" Pegboard since it is easy to determine 45° by just picking the right set of holes on the Pegboard. It is also easier to assure that the sled is aligned to the miter grooves/blade.

Thanks for the comments guys.

mIps I put my hands near the ends of the wings well away from the saw slot.

Steliart I may go back and put the blade guard on. I like the idea of no possible contact with appendages.

oldnovice that is a good idea but I didn't have any and truthfully didn't think of it. Haaa Haaa

Dave you'll have lots more fun iffin ya come now. I promise. Haaa Haaa
