Default table sled for mitre cuts

Has anyone seen a video where a woodworker uses a table saw sled with the blade set to 45degrees to cut the mitres for his boxes?

the board is flat on the sled.

I cannot locate it and would like to make the sled. Tried youtube without success, may be in Fine woodworking or one of those sites?

Hi James, can't say as I have seen a video on that. Sounds like it would just be a standard crosscut sled with the kerf slot cut at 45*, wouldn't it?

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

Yes, John.

I think that is what it is. I would just like to see it being made one more time before I make one this week end.

I cannot access videos or video sites at work, but see if this one is what you're looking for:

James..

I've built a 45 sled. nothing to it really... Like mentioned above, its really nothing more than a std. sled with a 45* bevel as the primary cut. Mine is a smallish version, works
quite well on small projects. It's only about 12"x14" or there abouts. When I redo it, I'll make it considerably wider (left to right) to have better control over longer boards. For now, anything that is 18"-24"'s balances out well on the sled. Anything boards longer and I have to put more effort than I care to on keeping the board flat on the sled as it
passes thru the blade. I also plan on putting in a "T" track on the left side to aid in clamping down the work piece...

Hi James, I still can't post links yet. Google "Doug Stowe miter sled" the first link is an article in FineWoodworking on his miter sled and the " Resawing and Grain-Matching with Doug Stowe" link shows him using it about the 4min mark in the video.

Thanks a lot - just spent the last 2-1/2 hours looking at these plans (and some others). Good thing it's my day off.


Actually, this looks really good. I'll probably build it soon (after I replace the bathroom sink, fix the front door, clean up the office and finish my planter box).

On a side note, I was driving down my street two days ago and spotted one of those Ikea style put together desks someone was throwing away. It was in a few pieces and the top is warped but the sides and top are covered with a blue plastic finish of some sort - looks like melamine except it's blue. I tossed it in the back of my truck and went to work. It'll make some nice fixtures someday soon.

You're welcome for my small part. There are many different versions to the TS sled. Just depends on the "route" you want to take. I would like to point out, if you get the "lazy bug" like I do at times, here a cheap jig already to go. $25 isn't a bad price for it.
