use 1/2" BB for my sled bottoms ... _you_
were the one with the MDF
for the bottom. :>)
Also, I prefer 1/2" BB plywood so that I don't lose too much blade cutting
Note that BB is also prone to have a bow now and then .... just orient your
sled bottom so that attaching the fences takes the bow out.
A good table saw book like Kelly Mehler's has ideas for sleds and sled
plans. Also, the meta Inca "miter sliders" come with plans that you can use
as a departure to roll you own ... they also have good tips on getting the
jig square to the blade, should you need help in that regard.
I have sleds with both hardwood runners and metal runners, and prefer the
metal adjustable runners ... but hardwood scrap is cheap. Just don't glue
the hardwood runners on and you can change them out when necessary.
