Nice setup. You'll get more interest and feedback if you provide some description of what you've got here, how you went about it, things you might change, etc.

Add your first name to your profile so we'll know what to call you and to clear the N/a in the side panel.

Hey, Leftfinger; welcome! That's a great looking sled project. As David said, more detail and specs would be much appreciated. For example, how do you adjust for slab thickness, or are all your blanks the same rough thickness to start?

(Not the bit ht. adjustment, that's pretty obvious.)

4 pieces aluminum angle iron 8 bolts some paste wax to make it glide and there you have it.
The router base was opened up to be able to raise and lower the 2" bit. This gives about 1 1/2" depth adjustment
This was a one off as I fastened spacers to the sides of the table and then the rails for the jig to them .
that gives infinite height adjustment Danni Van . This was due to the oversize nature of the table and not enough
room in the shop to store a jig that big

A beauty, Rich! Is that a temporary base, or was it previously used; it looks like it has some history(?).

I also like the idea of having those marks on the side pieces so you know how much to move it each time .
I’m liking the aluminum idea as it’s thin horizontally , which should be better as your not extending the router out as far.

Nice outcome on the table to Rich
