Nice little sled - you will use it more often than you can imagine. It's absolutely a must-have for cross cutting and small parts.

Thanks Noel. You're right. I used it a bunch already including today. The small miter gauge that comes with the saw is not accurate no matter how hard you try. I had the saw for years and finally made the upgrade. This is a whole lot better.

Perhaps the best looking wood I have seen on a sled. Wish I had some salvaged cabinets of that laying around. You will be happy for the time, and material spent on this sled, they are part of the answer.

Enjoy it.

Thanks therealSteveN. True, anytime you can complete a project without having to go to the store makes it that much more rewarding. The pantry cupboard door was from original cabinets when the house was built in 1970. 3/4" plywood with an old veneer. It's pretty heavy duty for a small crosscut sled.

Nice one - reminds me that I need to make a nice one myself.
I have one, but it looks like ******************** as I was in a hurry when I made it.

Thanks TEK73. It turned out good, but like yourself I was focusing more on the functionality of it. I shaped the fence so I could reach the part being cut and also to keep my fingers away from the blade if it cut through the backside.
