    ShopNotes Planer Sled

    I just finished the planer sled showcased in Shopnotes issue 138. (The last one.)
    Since I had enough cutoffs and scrap pieces of hickory and poplar, I used that and only had to purchase the hardboard, tee-nuts, and 5 nylon screws.. So, not counting the value of my cutoffs, I have about $25.00 invested in this.
    Now if I can find some affordable lumber, I can start making something.

    Nice job on the sled. I'm not real sure how it is used, could you explain it a bit? Thanks

    Same here, looks great, is it for a thickness planer?

    This scan from ShopNotes explains it.

    Never used one, always wondered how well it would work. Looks like if the board was warped very much you would end up with a 1/4" plank by the time you were done with all the planing.

    Great looking sled. I like the idea of these as they'll allow you to flatten and thickness boards wider than most of our jointers. As long as the board is not severely cupped or bowed it would avoid ripping and re-gluing.

    It's not a mistake, it's an opportunity for design change.
