Crosscut Sled Storage

By: Erich Lage
Keep that Big Ol' Crosscut Sled Close at Hand, But out of the Way

6 8 1 A crosscut sled is one of my favorite things I’ve built for my shop. The problem with the sled however, is it takes up a lot of room when not in use. One day, I realized the answer was staring me in the face. 6 8 3 A pair of oversized holes in the crosscut sled easily slip over the bolt head, yet still hold it secure. Short Wing. The solution came in the form of the wing on my table saw. The wing is shorter than the fence rail, and allowed enough room for me to hang the sled.

A Pair of Bolts. To create the hanger, I drilled a pair of holes into the MDF wing of the table saw. Then, using two nuts, I was able to secure a bolt into each hole. To hang the sled, I drilled two oversized holes in it that fit over the bolt heads. Now, whenever I’m done with my sled, I can hang it up out of the way. The best part of all is it’s still within reach.
