  1. Tablesaw Cross Cut Sled

    I finally got around to building a cross cut sled for my TS… Boy did I miss having one of these! The reasoning behind the dimensions is pretty simple; they were scrap pieces that were close to the size I wanted so I just picked a base size close to what I had on hand. Base: 31" x 36" 3/4"...
  2. Crosscut Sled upgrade

    This sled actually goes back two shops ago, to when I first bought my saw… call it almost 4 years, but today it got a lot safer… Construction is 3/4" solid wood core luann plywood for the platform, and the risers were 5/4 poplar with UHMV runners. Today, on the advice of a friend on...
  3. Crosscut Sled for Cheap Table Saw

    I started out with a cheap Craftsman table saw when I got the woodworking bug because my budget was very limited. Unfortunately, accuracy on one of these saws is elusive. I tried desperately to create runners for the bottom of the sled but to no avail. Craftsman cheapies don't have standard...
  4. Table Saw Work Center with Quick Connect Hardware and Dual Crosscut Sled System

    Before starting, let me apologize for the mess around the table saw center. The project is nearly complete now, but it's still in progress with just a few more items to complete. After these last steps are finished, it will be time to reorganize and clean the shop around this new center. Dust...
  5. Simple Crosscut sled

    A very simple crosscut sled. Made of leftover 2×4" and plywood with oak runners.
  6. Baby Crosscut Sled

    So saw another crosscut sled post this morning and I was prompted to post mine as a result… This sled model includes a cabinet door hinge hold-down clamp, some holes in the fence for clamps, a piece of scrap oak blade guard, an aluminum track cannibalized from the stock miter gauge, removable...
  7. Table Saw Crosscut Sled

    This is my simple crosscut sled. It is based off the design from the Wood Whisperer. I calculated how far off it was, somewhere around 0.0018" over a 12" run. I have a Ryobi table saw and the miter slot is a T-track, so the the runners had to be shaped to fit. They came out a little uneven...
  8. crosscut sled

    I just finished this crosscut sled. I used 3/4 inch mdf and some cherry scrap I had left over from a cutting board I am working on. I ripped the sliders to height and then crept up on the width with a thickness planer. I used Johnson paste wax on my table saw and in the miter slots and this sled...
  9. Crosscut sled

    I don't know why I didn't make this years earlier. I always made due trying to line up a straightedge on a pencil line and using a circular saw, but it never, and I mean NEVER worked out to be square enough. After trolling the web for ideas I finally settled on this design. I can crosscut up...
  10. Table Saw Crosscut Sled - Via Cessna Pilot Barrys Blog

    I have always wanted to build a cross cut sled for my table saw, but I always thought it was a pain to get it properly aligned to the blade…that is until recently when my buddy Cessna Pilot Barry posted a great how to blog on how to build a crosscut sled. It was everything I like in a jig/shop...
  11. Crosscut Sled

    I finally ended up building a crosscut sled and am liking it a lot so far. The base is 3/4" baltic birch and the fences and runners are hard maple. The base is 24×30". I was originally going to make it a little bigger, but Rockler is having a sale on 24×30" baltic birch panels and it ended up...
  12. New table saw set up

    So I finally got a table saw in my shop. I don't know how I have gone without one for so long. It's a Craftsman Professional Hybrid and I love it. Immediately after getting it into the shop I started working on a crosscut sled and an outfeed table for it. Both are courtesy of Marc Spagnolo...
  13. Fancy crosscut sled

    Let me start this out by saying I am fully aware that this thing is overkill. I wanted to make a crosscut sled that I would be proud of and last a long time. I had a couple leftover walnut boards from my columns that I ended up using: I used some cheap Borg plywood, Kreg T-track, and the...
  14. Dead Accurate Crosscut Sled

    This is a project I did last month for my upcoming major project build "Bookcase of Secrets". This item Is from plans at the Woodcraft Store "Dead On Accurate Cross Cut Sled - Downloadable Plan Item #150983D" I have to say i love this build !! I only regret not getting metal rails with the...
  15. Dado Sled and rabbet fence

    Sorry, but I love making sleds. This is the first dado sled I have made. Comments and suggestions welcomed! This one is quite a bit smaller than the cross cut sled(s) I made. It's 24" by 24" square. I was always a little hesitant to cut dadoes on the table saw, but I think this makes it a lot...
  16. Crosscut Sled

    I made this Crosscut sled early last year, I finally bought a real Tablesaw and it was time for a decent sled. I spent a little bit of money on the runners and tracks, but overall I am very pleased with the Sled. Since I have been milling my own lumber, I have been working with wider boards and...
  17. Table Saw Multi Sled

    Last but not least of the January Jigs….the new taper/jointer/crosscut/miter sled. I used to trace all the back slats for my chairs onto the stock, then clamp it to my old taper jig by lining up the pencil marks…now I simply set up the sliding fence to the part template, and can cut multiple...
  18. Ridgid Table Saw Upgrade

    I just finished doing some upgrades to my Ridgid 3650 Table Saw after getting a lot of good ideas from people's post on Lj and the Ridgid form. I added an Out feed table suspended by 1" aluminum angle. Using all thread and t nuts to level it. Built in a router table with miter gauge track and...
  19. Crosscut sled for Makita saw

    I have been putting off building a crosscut sled for far too long. My Makita saw has non standard mitre slots, they are 1/2" wide and only 3/16" deep. This always put me off trying to find something that could be used as a runner. A few days ago I found a Youtube video where an owner of a...
  20. Tablesaw Crosscut Sled

    After watching some videos and reading about the greatness of using a tablesaw crosscut sled I decided to make one. I took some scrap red oak and cut it for the rails as everything I read said to use a hard wood for the rails. I used 3/4 plywood for the base which after placing the rails in the...
