The absolute best cut quality I have ever achieved was, and always is, on a table saw.It cut's smoother, cleaner, and with a good blade, requires less sanding (if any at all).While it's main job may be ripping boards, you can also use it for all of your crosscutting.
If you do that, then you need to build yourself a table saw sled (crosscutting sled) so you can get near-perfect accuracy over and over again, without having to adjust and mess with the miter gauge.So today I'm going to show you how I made this precision table saw sled, using only scrap plywood, and implementing the 5 cut method for superior squareness upon completion.
Here are the steps in a nutshell: Cut your plywood pieces down to sizeBuild the main fence by laminating 2 pieces togetherAttach the solid aluminum runner to the base Attach the sled straightener board to the leading edgeAttach the main fence to the trailing edgeApply the 5-cut method to a piece of scrap, and fine tune the squarenessFinal assembly, and apply finish if desired So with that laid out, you can see there's not a lot to this process.
But doing it correctly and applying the 5 cut method is critical....
