Table Saw Cross Cut Sled
Recently I had to build a new sled, for a new saw, and this time took a few snapshots to put here.
I won't go into details of the construction, that is explained well enough in the original web page.
One new feature I added was the little box on the back of the jig, where
the sawblade would come out if you pushed it all the way through.
This is an added safety feature. First, it helps contain the saw blade,
in case you do push the jig too far. Second, it serves as a visual and
physical reminder to put your hands somewhere else! I think this idea
came from Kelly Mehler's table saw book. I should paint it red
This shot demonstrates how I can leave my home made

on the saw even when using this jig.
