    Crosscut sled completed!!

    Hi everyone.
    This is my first jig for my table saw besides my outfeed/assembly table.
    This is from Shopnotes.
    I am really happy with it even though it took me awhile. A little bit of burning of the oak is visible. Also when I cut the kerf I cut too far in to the blade guard. I will fix that shortly.
    Cuts are dead on and it was pretty easy to build.
    Man Im really diggin buildin stuff.




    We put the "k" in "kwality."

    The above picture is not me!!

    That looks great, Craig. You should get a lot of use out of it.

    That's a great looking sled Craig. Hadn't seen one with the stop built on it before. What a great idea. Thanks...

    I really need to build one of those, you did a great job. By the way does anyone have plans for a small parts sled? Jack
