Thanks For The Inspiration WoodNThings

I took inspiration from your table saw sled project and built my own. I had always struggled with creating accurate miters and wanted to build a good quality sled. I had built sleds before but used only what ever square I had to set the back fence. This time I used the five cut method to set the fence and it is nearly perfect.

That turned out great!

No build pictures? thanks for the creds.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Great looking sled. Might consider adding a guard where the blade exits. It's too easy to accidentally have a hand resting or pushing there.

...or at least paint it a bright color. That's what I do for all of my miter gauge extensions. So far I still have all 10.
