  1. Shop helpers

    I'm using up some scraps and making useful items. The first is a sled for resawing log slabs. I hand planed a log half, then ran it through the planer to get the faces parallel. Double sided tape holds it to the sled. I'm happy. The next sled is for bandsawing round pieces. I like them held...
  2. The Simplest Tenon Jig

    You don't need a complex jig to make a simple task. I've come up with a jig that requires only three pieces. It works in conjunction with a crosscut sled (photo #2) or a miter gauge outfitted with an auxiliary fence (photo #6). My shown homemade micro-setting jig is a plus to fine tune the...
  3. Snow is falling...build a sled!

    It's snow so much here in Erie, PA that I figured I needed a new sled. A new crosscut sled, that is! Here it is…look familiar? Yep, another take from "Woodworks". At first I built it just to have one that looks like David Marks' sled, but it's actually very functional! The changing height...
  4. Pallet Wood Sled... In 30 Minutes!

    Hello All, Well a snow storm decided to dump nearly a foot of snow on my home so I got the itch to show my daughter how to make a sled out of wood! Considering the fact that this was for outdoor snow use, I used pallet wood to construct the frame for this sled, we then applied some wax to...
  5. Flattening jig for router my favorite project

    Planing and jointing lumber is crucial to a tight fitting and square project but… a jointer over 6 1/2" gets pricey and a planer can make your material flat but takes special sleds to get the job done. So, I had this out feed table and starting figuring the dimensions I would need to use some 1"...
  6. Crosscut Sled

    Quick and dirty crosscut sled - what a difference this makes on accuracy (not to mention safety). Should have made this ages ago. Thanks for looking.
  7. 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"...
  8. Combination Bevel Sled for small parts.

    10 left, 37 right and 49 left… finally 0… and OPEN. Just kidding, not that type of combination, but the combination of both a 90° and 45 ° bevel cut on the same sled. Just as a disclaimer, I have always called a mitre cut a non 90° cut, so may I be whipped extensively if I use mitre and bevel...
  9. How many table saw sleds do you use?

    How many table saw sleds do you use? Over the years I ended up using 6 table saw sleds of different sizes, some more often than the others. My sleds are not fancy but they all cut straight. I know some will tell me I should have built a multi-sled, but the hardware needed are not sold here and...
  10. Table Saw Sled

    Here's my version of the table saw sled. Like everything I do, it's overkill . I really like for my jigs to look as good as they function. This one uses baltic birch plywood, walnut, and flame maple. When I work with nice tools it puts me in a different mindset, which affects the work I do...
  11. Router Table Sled

    I like to build my jigs as versatile as possible. This is my router table sled. It is baltic birch plywood, mahogany and flame maple. I've got T-slots routed for hold downs, an adjustable angled fence, assorted fences, and a jig for doing dovetail splines. The T-slot in the fence was done by...
  12. Jumping on the super sled bandwagon

    I'm so glad to have found this forum and I love looking through the projects. I'm just starting out, so I'm pretty stinky at most of the basic skills, but I'm slowly moving forward. I finally got 240v out in the barn and was able to fire up the cabinet saw, which had been sitting around for a...
  13. Fibonacci Gauge & Coping Sled

    After browsing LJ's archives and watching TheWoodWhisperer's "Gadget Station" series, I decided to build a couple of things for the shop. As a Mechanical Engineer, I'm fascinated by Fibonacci and am in the process of designing our dining room table according to the Golden Mean. Did I mention...
  14. Miter Key Sled

    I am working on a mitered box project that I thought would look great with some paduak miter keys. The problem is that I had never done these keys before, I have never made my own jig/sled before. I and had some scrap wood lying around. The sled portion of this is red oak. The part that slides...
  15. Cross Cut Sled

    This is a super cross cut sled. Has four t-tracks on the base and one on the fence.
  16. A Sled For My Grandson’s Birthday

    I put together this sled for my grandson, it is a based on the pull behind sleds parents used to take their children through the snow. It is made out of poplar and has several coats of paint on it to protect if from the elements. I have waxed up the runners quite well and it so it will glide...
  17. WOW! THIS IS OUR 200TH PROJECT! A Miniature Sled

    Our 200th project is kind of a simple little thing. Barb wanted a small sled for a holiday display, so I drew up a pattern, & went to my shop for a couple of hours. She was very pleased with the results. This is made of Aspen, Bigtooth Aspen a tree that blew down at our cabin. We burned...
  18. Butterfly Inlaid Changing Table & Dresser in Cherry and Maple

    I built this dresser/changing table for my first born, Annalise. It features a exotic wood butterfly inlay and curly maple "racing stripe" in the top, fluted cherry side and door panels, and a removable top "drawer box". The main internal structure is birch plywood with frame-and-panel sides...
  19. Crosscut Sled ala Steve Maskery

    This is my adaptation of Steve Maskery's Crosscut Sled (Workshop Essentials 3 http://www.workshopessentials.com/ ). The base is 1/2" MDF, 24" x 24". Thanks to the telescoping fences, I can crosscut stock to just under 60", and can safely handle panels up to 24". I still need to order a...
  20. Band Saw Milling Sled

    Inspired by, among other things, info I've found here at Lumberjocks, I finally broke down and built a sled for milling lumber on my band saw. It is dirt cheap, mud simple, and yields results that, while unlikely to earn me a cover shot on Fine Woodworking, mean I can turn firewood into...
