I am not an expert in crosscut sleds but, I have made three. The first
and second using 3/4" maple/birch plywood and hard maple fences. The
first one lasted not more than a few days and the second lasted about
two months, it warps/twisted and finally falls apart after I dropped
I made the third one yesterday from the Dec. 2003 issue of Popular
Woodworking's Jigs & Shop Tips. (Still available in bookstores or
newsstands). What make this one outstanding is, it is adjustable and
can handle panels up to 24" wide and 36" long. I will make another
smaller one from the materials left over. This time the fence will be
in the back rather than in the front and will replace the UHMW miter
bar or slide beneath with Lee Valley's miter slide.
