Table Saw Sled -DELUXE SMALL

‹Return to Previous Page
Description

Description

This is the every-day user out of of three homemade table saw sleds I have in my shop. I call it the “Mini Sled” because it it is a smaller, easier to pull out and stow away version of the big “Mega Sled” – but it is almost as capable.

It includes plans for a clever system of joinery jig attachments including a finger joint jig, a pair of dovetail jigs, a tenon-cutting jig, a jig for cutting spline slots to reinforce frames and boxes, and spring activated micro-adjusters to fine tune your cuts. It is by far the most capable table saw sled system around!

Note- the dovetail jig attachments are a little large for this sled. They will work, but they will hang off the edge. They work best on the larger version of this sled, which is available in our web store.

You may also purchase this sled, our larger version (for larger work) and our special miter sled (for 45-degree frames and boxes) as a set at a discounted rate in the “table saw jigs” catagory of our project plans store.

Below are some examples of what our deluxe project plans look like. This plan will be similar.

Adjustable Router Bit Rack

This rack was created with that in mind. It is designed to evolve with your collection. Not only can you move the bits around, you can also move the holes! This makes it possible to group bits by type, to add more places for 1/4-inch or 1/2-inch shaft bits, and each bit holder is removable so you may keep the bit protected when you take it to your bench or router table. This may be the last bit rack you ever build!

Homemade Router Lift

This lift features an improved tracking mechanism, adjustments are made from above the table using a 1 1/8" socket or wrench, it attaches to a homemade router plate, and will go into almost any router table that has a removable plate. Or you can use it by itself as a stand-alone mini router table! The plans are designed for a standard 3 1/2 - 3 3/4" round, removable router motor.

Bench-Top Biscuit Joiner

This machine was born out of frustration! Stumpy had a cheap hand-held biscuit joiner that he picked up on a whim at Harbor Freight. The problem with cheap units like that is the difficulty that comes with making an accurately placed slot without the tool rocking out of position during the cut!  So, like any good woodworker, Stumpy set out to find a solution. And the result is a bench top unit that can make a cheap tool into something easier to use than even the expensive hand-held versions.  The Bench-top Biscuit Joiner is fast and accurate, inexpensive to build, and has dozens of uses. It's great for edge gluing boards, strengthening any butt joint, cutting slots for raised panels and picture frames... you name it!

Table Saw Fence

This fence is truly unique with an innovative locking system that self squares to the blade, a micro adjuster for fine tuning your cuts, and an anti-kick-back European style with detachable extensions. Even the rails are made from wood! It's designed to fit any saw from small, bench top units to large cabinet saws, with or without side tables. There's even a built in pencil & accessory holder! (This project can be used on its own, but it is also designed to fit our deluxe table saw workstation)

24″ Band Saw

This band saw is BIG on everything except size. It features a full 24" of throat capacity, yet it's small enough to fit on a bench. It's loaded with features that even the commercially made saws lack, like a built in sliding crosscut table, ball bearing blade guides, and a unique dust collection manifold. You can use common 104"-105" blades and the best part is, it's made almost entirely from wood!

Incremental Tenon Jig

This tenon jig is yet another example of how you can use a homemade incremental positioner in amazing ways! It provides a positive stop every 1/6" (which can be micro-adjusted to the tiniest amount), making it impossible to set up the jig wrong, and making it easy to make many tenons that are all exactly the same size without laying them out individually. The accuracy and repeatability of this jig is unique in any homemade or even store-bought version- just check out the video below to see! But the best part is, it's inexpensive and easy to make using our detailed plans, complete with lots of photos and step-by-step instructions!

Simple Router Mortising Jig

This jig is simple and inexpensive to make, but well thought out to provide a surprising level of functionality. It may be used with a plunge router and an edge guide to create accurate, repeatable mortises. You can cut tricky ones too, such as double mortises, parallel mortises and even mortises in round stock.

Table Saw Sliding Crosscut Table

The Europeans have had a secret for years- their saws have sliding tops for easy and accurate crosscuts! We can buy attachments for our saws in the US, but they are EXPENSIVE. So why not make your own? This one mounts to the side of your contractor or cabinet saw (for smaller saws, use with the TS Workstation) and includes an adjustable miter fence, even a storage drawer. Great for working with plywood panels!

Spring Clamps (free)

These homemade spring clamps are easy to make, and cost almost nothing (assuming you have some scrap wood and rubber bands laying around.) They're great for light duty clamping, and make an excellent project for kids- just be sure to supervise while they use the band saw or scroll saw. The link below will provide you with patterns for a large and small version.
