My First Project

I made my first project today — a crosscut sled for my table saw.

It’s made pretty much entirely out of 3/4 inch MDF except for the runners, which are 1/4 inch hardwood. I’ve made some test cuts and it seems solid. It doesn’t move very well, though. I’m going to give it an extra coat of paste wax and double check the runners for sticking.

Honestly, I think it may just be too heavy. I was worried about that with the MDF, but it’s what I had on hand. Oh, well. I still made it.
