Shop Tip: The Beastmaster Crosscut Sled

I built this to cut the big panels for the Thomas Walnut Dresser. It’s built from Appleply, and weighs a ton. So glad I made this finally. in the picture below it’s out of position on the saw, it’ rides in both miter slots. The wide end is to the right of the saw kerf.


The fences are made from Baltic Birch, three layers thick, with another block to bury the blade.



The corners are rounded to make this easier to handle.



Here’s my shop helper – she had face paint on from a birthday party. She likes to sit on the workbench.
