Home Up Forty Five Degree Crosscut Sled Custom Keepsake Box Xander's Toy Box Napkin Holder Serving Tray Paper Towel Holder

Since my retirement from the North Carolina Department of Correction on March 1, 2012, I have gotten back into doing some woodworking and decided to add this page with some of the projects.  I have already completed a hanging porch swing and a custom banjo which are hyperlinked. 

My bride of 47 years wants me to make her a custom letter box and/or keepsake box and doing small boxes, etc., presents some new challenges.  I already have a ninety (90) degree table saw sled and a forty-five (45) degree angle sled for things like picture frames, etc., but need a forty-five (45) degree crosscut sled for vertical orientation such as a drawer front.  Probably could do it on a miter saw but the crosscut sled with the table saw blade angled to 45 degrees is the route I plan to take.

I will start this page off by making the 45 degree crosscut table saw sled and will have sub-pages from this page with each individual project as a separate page.  As with any type of skill, "If you don't use it, you loose it", therefore I will have to hone my woodworking skills and get the eye hand coordination working again.  Things are much different when you reach the Senior Citizen status as with our youth, but I am thankful for each and every day that the Lord allows.

My goal will be to keep Safety paramount because hand and power tools can do serious bodily harm and death if not used properly, therefore these pages are solely for entertainment purposes only from a personal liability standpoint.  Please read the Legal Stuff page for additional information concerning liability issues before going any further.

Lets begin with the Forty-Five (45) degree crosscut sled for the table saw.
