Project Information

From my basic woodworking knowledge everybody refers to the table saw sled as an indispensable tool in the shop., so naturally I decided to build one as my second project.

The base is made of 3/4 plywood and the fences are made with a standard 2×4 squared off on the thickness planer.

I also made a 45 degree fence to make easy cuts at that angle and 2 pencil holders within easy reach.

I found it a bit challenging to get the fence perfectly square with the blade, but after a few test cuts and a lot of finagling with the feeler gauge, I got it almost dead on (0.002 inches @ 10ft … I think I can live with that!)

Overall I am extremely satisfied with it… Later on I think I will add a blade guard at the end of it… or perhaps I'll just build a new one with more advanced features!

As always, your questions, comments, and constructive criticisms are always welcome!

Thanks for looking!

I like how simple that is. I've held off on building one since I'm thinking of replacing my not so great Hitachi TS with a Bosch, but I may have to give that a shot.

Thank you! This was my first one, so rather than having a bunch of features, my main concern was to have the blade square with the fence!

Thanks again for commenting!

Nice sled! I don't know about that accuracy though. It is off .000954 degrees! Pretty amazing!!
