Easy-To-Build Crosscut Sled

By: Phil Huber
You may think that a crosscut sled is needed only for cutting wide panels. Not so, says Phil Huber. He built a small-scale sled to handle all of his everyday crosscutting needs. The result is smoother, cleaner cuts and reliable performance.

Get the step-by-step plans to build this Table Saw Crosscut Sled from WoodsmithPlans.com.

Standard cross cut sleds have one major drawback – the weight. The design of this sled helps reduce weight and make it smaller and easy-to-use.

Its simple construction is easy to build and the aluminum fence that is secured with threaded knobs and a stop block make cross cuts accurate and repeatable. A tapered handle gives it a comfortable grip and the steel runner helps the sled slide smoothly in the miter slot.
