    Don’t listen to the haters. I appreciate your videos and I’m more interested in precision. I didn’t find your first video complicated. The haters accept mediocre, I refuse to.

  2. Michael Grote on March 29, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    Just used this method after simply squaring it with a framing square against the blade. That gave me a rubbish result of 0.5mm out over 200mm. After doing this process, mucking it up a bit a couple of times and making the best I could I remeasured the error and tyo my amazement I came up with an error of 0.0001" (0.1 thousanths of an inch) over the width of the fence!
    Thank you 👍

    Ah forget that shit challenge them dude they just can’t stand it at all that video is great keep going they don’t understand that it is fun and relaxing to u and if they want there’s always other content I thank you sir for your work

  4. Roy Stidoms The 2nd on March 29, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Don’t let internet a holes bring you down. People don’t have any manners or respect anymore. Keep doing what you’re doing. To hell with the haters.

  5. Jim Archer on March 29, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    You make it look easy. I’m going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

  6. kenodysseys on March 29, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Lmao. Don’t pay attention to those guys. Just cause someone doesn’t want the math, the knowledge to go very detailed as they want down to .001 then they’re other videos if they don’t want that level of perfection. For those that do,…that’s why we watch you. Thank you for what you do!!

  7. jesse green on March 29, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    It’s three!!! I love it glad to know I’m not the only one lol great build love your videos

  8. Bryan Laurie on March 29, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    I have had my interprovincial machinist red seal qualification for over 40 years and my tool and die for about 35. Now that I am retired, I have gotten into woodworking and it is a whole new world. This stuff never stops moving, it is acting like it is alive! There is no annealing wood as it really doesn’t like heat treating furnaces so you have to pay close attention to things like humidity, grain direction, etc. so that your projects don’t slowly split and self-destruct. Your teaching style is great (I also have my Vocational and Adult education license) so don’t let those tinfoil hat wearing, brain dead, flat earth society fools get you down. These haters can’t stand anyone that can form a coherent thought. I wish you the best in the future and please keep up with what you are doing! Thank you.

  9. Marcus Vise on March 29, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    I have not built my crosscut sled yet, but I will be using your method to do it.

    If you are as precise as you can be to begin with, any variances that creep in won’t be magnified by sloppy tolerances.

    Please don’t listen to negative comments from people who do not have your caliber of mind. It’s just silly and exhausting.

  12. Peco Simplu on March 29, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Don’ t waste time reading negativ comments. You are verry good at what you are doing. Those who can not understand that elementary math formula for shure dose not worth any attention.
    Thanks again. I appreciate verry much your videos, especially precission and accuracy . 👏👏👏
    Maybe some day we will send it to the moon…

  13. Alan Lau on March 29, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Finally made a miter sled after following your directions for a 90 degree tablesaw sled. For the miter sled I used some scraps and am very happy. Thanks so much for sharing. I have a Mitutoyo digital gauge (battery operated) but I like the idea of the gauge that you use to make your measurements.: never need to worry about a dead battery.

  14. Andrea Young on March 29, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    We love and appreciate your wisdom, humor, and teaching skills. We are learning greatly from you. Thank you and please post more.

  15. Charles Hirst on March 29, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    William: you are one of the woodwork experts that show how stuff is done. A true expert is someone who clearly has the knowledge and the means to communicate this effectively – and you have that ability with bells on. I truly love your appreciation and approach to precision, and as regards the trolls – why bother giving them even half-a-thought, they really are not worth it.

  16. djtblizzle on March 29, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I’m not smart enough for this. Maybe one day I’ll get it

  17. Living land NZ on March 29, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I love your videos William I have watched them many times. I also suck at maths but you make the process so easy to understand. Thank you so much.

  18. Chicago Joe on March 29, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Watched again Thank You,,, still !earning good stuff

  19. Cerberus on March 29, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    I’m sorry dumbass, hillbilly racists are scared of Math. I can say that to them because I’m white, and know they are too.
    You do You and continue to bring the accuracy!

  20. Stephen Bright on March 29, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    very well done and very useful. thanks

  21. Jamie Omeara on March 29, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Very nice thank you for sharing, your videos have helped me so much.

  22. Jeremy Simmons on March 29, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    To hell with those "good enough" types. Accuracy in measurements and set up saves a lot of headaches later in the process.

  23. H De R on March 29, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    If a person has nothing positive and /or constructive to ad, why do they comment? Either way i am going to make this miter sled and use it a lot. By the way, its good of you to share the responses.

  24. Dubs Barry on March 29, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    William, another William here, I’m sure you know but you can’t please everyone. And some dummies are so bad at math that they get scared, then lash out, and say things like, "Take your math and shove it up your dado!" Well they just need to adjust their Tampax.
    You my friend are the bomb! I made one of your sanding blocks using blue gasket material I had in the shop and man oh man everybody likes to steal it off my table. They always steal my hacksaw blade sandpaper cutter too. Anyway, your videos are the tops my man. Love them. Haters will always hate. Why? As my kids say, "Cuz they jelly!"
    Keep up the awesome work man!!!

  25. Blame USA on March 29, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I like precision… but am too bad to achieve it 😢

  26. tim h on March 29, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Love your videos. Thanks for your help

  27. Michael Hickson on March 29, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    I am relatively new to wood working and I thank you for explaining how to do it right. You allow folks like me to understand why and how to get it right. I appreciate your style and full explanations. Your are an excellent teacher! Keep up the good work, it is certainly appreciated.

  28. John Tynan on March 29, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    thank you, William, for your wonderful detailed videos. they are very helpful, greeting from Ireland

  29. James Pugh on March 29, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Thank you so very much for making accuracy obtainable. Your teaching method and content are not only educational but enjoyable. The complainers are just lazy and probably inefficient. I’ll stick with you and learn to do it right.

  30. Dick Shaw on March 29, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Sir: I was so saddened to hear you tell us how badly you were treated by some commenters. Is there any more basic concept in woodworking than "square"? I am an amateur woodworker, 78 years old, who began this wonderful journey only 5 years ago after my wife passed away. Yet I was able to understand and apply your method very quickly. How great to learn something to make my work so much better at absolutely no cost other than the wood for a new sled. It is an honor to learn from you.

  31. bobbg on March 29, 2022 at 6:55 pm


  32. Bruce Henriksen on March 29, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    This is the most innovative approach in accuracy! Your method to setting up a forty five degree angle is unique, no guess work to get it perfect. Sorry that you had to endure negative comments, this really is well thought out. I use a digital caliper in my shop every day, nice to see I am not alone. I have subscribed and watched several of your other videos. All are very well done, you do know your stuff! Great job in your presentation, keep it up.

  33. Allan Fischer on March 29, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    If the high school math I tried to master had come with practical application like the examples you show here, it would have been a lot easier and more beneficial. Don’t pay any attention to the hammer-heads that cut their miters and fit joints with a hatchet – you are a true artisan. Thank you!!

  34. NotMe on March 29, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Good video!

  35. Ron Newberry on March 29, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Nasty complaints? It seems to me that anyone who can’t understand the simple math and clear explanations should just step away from dangerous objects like table saws.

  36. George Brush on March 29, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    I know you are very good with math, but which 2 cuts are your referring to:) ANYONE who gives you a thumbs down just needs to move on.

  37. Terry Pendergrass on March 29, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    William, you’re right haters gonna hate!!! Ignore them! Very few people on youtube that I actually remember their name, yours being one of them. I just recently bought a house and purchased a used table saw and after searching for how to clean it up, I did a search for your name so I could find that 5 cut video! I WILL be using it when I build my miter sled! Thank you so much!!!

  38. Philip Morgan on March 29, 2022 at 7:01 pm


  39. Eric Martin on March 29, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Thanks very much, loved your video.

  40. Bob Sitchenko on March 29, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Hello my friend, you did a excellent explanation that in my opinion not shot a rocket you landed the rocket. I’m 72 yrs old today. Over the years I too was offended by comments the it hit me. Why? Some people are jealous , some people lack knowledge. I simply say to them,”Show me, I’m from Missouri “… the amazing thing is that they become very quick to go away. And when I was shown in error, I quickly adapted and said, thank you. My best to you….Bob

  41. Brian Nelson on March 29, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    It has been said before but not enough. You are doing a great job and I understand what you are teaching! Keep it up! Thank You!

  42. Carl Wheeler on March 29, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    This video is old but I just want say thank you for the 5 cut video, it has greatly enhanced the quality of my woodworking projects. You are the best and your sense of humor has made me laugh on several occasions. Thanks again.

  43. JoaquinGTP on March 29, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Another brilliant and easy to understand video. You’re clearly a great teacher. And I greatly appreciate the math! Nice to get away from trial and error and dial it in using something measurable. Thank you!

  44. tim miller on March 29, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    you are the goat!

  45. Alan Budd on March 29, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Thank you for helping this newbie. May I ask, why do you complete the 90 cut with your bandsaw instead of your table saw?

  46. Ferndalien on March 29, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Made this sled, it works. I had one frustrating problem that had to do with the wood I was using for cutting the small triangles to measure the off-angle. I used a long piece of particleboard scrap that I had cut straight. Consequently there was tearout on the corner of the triangle where the blade came out of the board. I didn’t realize how it was throwing off my measurements, but I could see that with successive triangle test cuts the error was all over the place. When I finally realized it, I cut a piece of high quality plywood into parallel strips for test pieces and I used a sacrificial backer board that extended past the cut path of the blade. I made very sure the backer board was parallel. I cut another test triangle, this time both corners were sharp, made the adjustment based on the calcs, did one more test triangle to check and it was close enough that I could have only made it worse with any further adjustment. My first mitered project has come out just fine.
    If you don’t have a micrometer or caliper that can measure in thousandths of an inch or hundredths of a millimeter, I recommend you get one. You’ll find it pays for itself over and over in many other situations as well.

  47. Roby Kaufman on March 29, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    Thought the 5 cut video was excellent.

  48. Loyd Alexander on March 29, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    I only wish I were that good and accurate

  49. Jason roman on March 29, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Keep up the good work! Hate is going to hate!

  50. Kevin Haberman on March 29, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    please keep the precision math! I love accuracy . keep up the great work, love your videos!!
