Default plans for tables saw sled

Does anyone have a link to a good T/S sled plan? I just bought a full size T/S and need to make a full size one for it. My portable T/S sled is ok but I am sure there is a better plan out there.

Hi Jamie. I would suggest looking on Youtube. Do a search... there are LOTS of examples on there. As for plans... it's not a difficult thing to draw up on your own. Only thing you have to decide on is how big you want to make it.

Of course, once you have it made, you will probably discover that it's not big enough.


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

You can search YouTube for Norm Abrams or New Yankee Workshop for a video showing him making one. There was also a thread not long ago started by Moz that had a lot of input from members that can be found by searching our members list for her then finding her personal profile by clicking on her user name and then checking her Statistics for past threads and posts.

One thing you have to decide is whether you want a single or double runner sled. Each is better at some things than the other.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Depends on how elaborate a sled you want to make. You can go with a one-runner simple fence and panel; a two runner with fences front and back with a safety guard.

Here's a link to a fancy sled - the video pertains to the 5-cut method (I'm not advocating this method - I'm only providing the link) but on the web page he lists the dimensions of the sled/runners etc.

Over the years, I have found them bulky and a pain to store and have fallen into disuse.

I use an Osborne Miter Guide now and find it much easier to store and use. Incra makes a nice one too!

You can go to stumpy nubbs and build one that does about everything. The plans are usually 10 bucks. The guy makes some interesting stuff.
