Router Table Sled
Packed with features, this sled makes it easy to rout perfect-fitting joints.
A router table is a great tool for producing tight, crisp joints. But routing across the grain of a workpiece can be a problem. This sled makes it easy. Right behind the workpiece, you’ll find an MDF backing strip that supports the workpiece to eliminate tearout. And the hold-down locks even narrow workpieces firmly in place to keep them square as they move through the bit.

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.
