Multipurpose Table Saw Sled
Make incredibly accurate crosscuts and miters, and even cut tenons with ease, all using this precision shop-built system.
Here’s a great way to increase the cutting performance of any table saw. Just replace the undersized miter gauge with this integrated, multi-function system. You can make one to fit your saw, and all you need is a bit of plywood, a handful of hardware and a weekend’s worth of shop time. The heart of the system is a plywood sled that supports your workpiece as you cut. The sled rides in the miter gauge slot, and can be used on the left or right side of the blade. In either case, the edge of the sled hugs tight against the saw blade, so aligning your cut line is automatic. To achieve this tight tolerance, you need to custom-fit the sled to your saw, but we’ll make that easy. The sled is equipped with rows of T-nuts that accept an adjustable fence system for making accurate crosscuts and miters, plus hold-downs to secure your stock. You can even build and attach an optional tenon jig.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
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.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
