4-in-1 Box Building Sled
A basic sled and a few add-ons create a versatile jig for common box-making tasks.
Since box parts are often small, jigs and sleds can safely and accurately perform a variety of tasks from crosscutting and mitering to cutting box joints and slots for decorative keys. This sled takes that concept one step further by combining the functions of four jigs into one design. The key is a simple sled that performs a few basic chores. From there, you attach a couple of handy add-ons to tackle joinery.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
