George Vondriska shows you how to create and use two different sleds in your woodworking shop using Micro Jig appliances, one for cutting perfect miters on your table saw, and another that will help you to easily crosscut small woodworking pieces with your band saw. The Zero PlayGuide Bar System from Micro Jig fits directly into the miter gauge slots on your table saw and band saw, which ensures that your sled will stay on a straight line and makes your job much easier.

    I asked this question of the experts via email about using a brad nailer vs a stapler. George appears to prefer a stapler for tacking his projects together. The answer I received back was to get a brad nailer rather than a pneumatic stapler. I believe this comes down to personal preference and that the brad nailer has more versatility for someone just starting out.


    I always thought each cut needed to be basically exactly 45 degrees. In my mind, I don't understand if one end is 46 and the other is 44 (yes I know that equals 90 degrees) but I don't see how the frame will come out square. I struggle making frames because I cannot consistently get all the four corners to fit exact without some space showing. And I do not understand how this sled will solve that issue.
