In this project tutorial we'll be making a miter sled, which will be dedicated to cutting 45 degree angle cuts, ideal for trim work, picture frames, wall decor, and many other projects.This is a sled for your table saw and it's made with a 1/2″ plywood base (although that can be done in 3/4″), the miter fences are 1-1/2″ plywood (two 3/4″ pieces laminated), and the blade block and front fence are made from standard dimensional 2×6 construction grade lumber.
Step 1 - Glue Up The Fence First you'll want to take some 3/4″ plywood and laminate 2 pieces together, to create some 1-1/2″ fence stock.Ultimately the size of your miter sled fences will be 2-1/4″ by 14″.
But this first glue up can be larger, and you'll have fence stock made up then for other sleds.Just cover one piece of plywood with wood glue and clamp the pieces together.Ideally this should be really flat plywood.
If it has a bow, you can try to flatten it by gluing the pieces so the bow in each board is opposite the other.Then when glued, the opposing bows might flatten the laminated fence stock.That's what I did here to deal with the bow these...
