Get the step-by-step plans to build this Precision Crosscut Sled: here https://www.woodsmithplans.com/plan/precision-crosscut-sled/?apid=36564
This crosscut table saw sled was featured on the Woodsmith Shop, Episode 403: Table Saw Jigs & Accessories. In this video, the guys walk us through the construction, features, and uses. The lightweight sled design makes cutting large workpieces on the table saw a snap. The rock-solid fence ensures square cuts every time — with easy to adjust controls to make setup quick and simple. The versatile design lets you add a variety of accessories, like a flip stop, ruler, and a box joint jig, and the adjustable, zero-clearance base means cleaner cuts with less chipout for standard kerfs or dadoes. We’ve also included plans for building an optional fence extension to help with extra-long boards.
***Note: For those with a keen eye, you may have noticed that the sled in this video and the photos from our plans are mirror images of each other. This sled was originally designed for a right-tilt table saw. If your blade tilts to the left, like the majority of newer saws and the table saw shown in the video, you’ll need to make a mirror image of the sled shown in the plans. This is so the sliding base can open up in the direction in which your dado blades will stack to accommodate for a wide range of dado blade widths.***
