So I’ve designed and built this handy little taper sled, and I made it so you can use it for jointing one edge, or putting nice straight-edge on pretty much anything.
This version is much lighter and easier to set up than my last sled, which was not my design. I used it for years, and I wanted to make something less bulky for my small wood shop.
So check out this video, maybe you’ll get some ideas on how you can use or improve your taper sled.
You’ll get complete plans and instructions for use when you join Wood Shop Essentials. Plus you’ll get everything listed below:
