Just completed my coping sled for my router table, thought I would share this with you.
I made the base from 3/8 polycarbonate plastic, the same material for making cd's and bulletproof windows. polycarbonate over other types of plastic is unbeatable for strength combined with light weight and machinable with standard router bits makes this a good choice, but it's the most expensive piece of the project at $23.
I added 2 5 1/2" horizontal clamps for extra hold down strength, a 3" post front and rear to guide the sled plus I added the sliding material stop to keep the work in perfect alignment too the fence and router bit.
The sleds fences and stops are made from 3/4 high high pressure melamine with 2 1/4 star knobs that can be adjusted to handle workpieces up to 7 1/4 in width.
The total cost to make this jig was $40. but worth every penny and produces perfect joints without any hint of end grain of tearout
Here's the Pictures

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.
