Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. THis new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I havent yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to catch next weeks video Part 2 which wraps up this project.

I love my original crosscut sled, so when you (the viewers) asked me to make a video about how to make that sled, I started to think of ways to improve upon the existing design.
I regularly use two different sleds in my shop:
1. My crosscut sled which I use mainly for crosscutting, and cutting shoulder cuts on tenons.
2. Wood Magazines Universal Tablesaw Jig which I use exclusively for mitering.
The Super Sled has all the benefits of my original crosscut sled, including a t-track for adjustable stop blocks. The new sled 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.
I really love mitering with Wood Magazines Universal Tablesaw jig which is why I wanted to incorporate all the features of this jig into the Super Sled. The Universal Tablesaw jig needs to be switched from one side of the blade to the other when doing complementary miters. With an identical setup on both sides of the blade, you can easily miter on either side of the blade.
I designed the Super Sled with versatility in mind. The four slots in the main board of the fence function the same as t-tracks, and allow for the inclusion of stop blocks, the miter fence, and other add-on jigs like a tenon or box joint jig.

This video details the assembly of WOOD Magazine’s Universal Tablesaw Jig. The hardware kit shown in the video is from Schlabaugh & Sons. This woodworking video shows how to construct the kit and explains the basics of the how the Universal Tablesaw Jig operates. The laser engraved table accurately sets angles for miter cuts on the tablesaw. The alignment pins making setting the jig for 90 degree crosscuts a breeze. The jig also operates as a taper jig.

Is your tablesaw or router best for cutting dadoes, rabbets, and grooves in your woodworking projects? WOOD magazine pitted two veteran woodworkers against each another, one using a stacked dado set in a tablesaw and the other using a router, jig, and guide bushing, to machine the channels in a cabinet project to see which is faster.
