Check out this woodworking video from Eagle Lake Woodworking. Learn how to build a table saw crosscut and miter sled by watching this five-part series.

This so-called Super Sled combines two of the best workshop jigs. The Super Sled includes a T-track for adjustable stop blocks and also uses a flip stop, so you can keep the stop in the same place, but flip it up out of the way to make other cuts in between.

A stop block on your crosscut sled can improve accuracy for repeatable cuts. The third video shows how to make the stop block for the Super Sled, and also compares a commercial flip stop to the shop made version.

A commercial tenon can jig can cost a lot of money. The fourth video will show you how to build a tenon jig that has all the features of a commercial tenoning jig. You can build this shop made tenon jig with basic skills and materials that you may have leftover from other projects. This shop jig has a micro adjustment feature, a built in scale, and a unique leveling system.

Cut accurate and reproducible miters with this shop made miter fence designed for use with the Super Sled. Using a stop block for repeatable cuts allows you to get the exact same size pieces each and every time you miter. This versatile setup can cut a wide range of angles safely and accurately on the table saw. John W. Nixon from Eagle Lake Woodworking walks you through building the fence, and two different kind of stop blocks. The setup process for mitering with the fence is shown in the fifth video.
