Made with the Laser Engraver...
I had a need to cut multiple dowels and didn't have access to the table saw right away.
I drew a simple sled - a foundation design for more enhancements and sizes - which I could burn and assemble with glue.
I built this at TechShop San Jose - www.techshop.ws
Step 1: Hello MDF, My Old Friend...
It's made from 1/4" MDF - one of my favorites for laser cutting and assembling. Great for Jigs! Cheap!
The height of the fence is 1/4" in this case - this was enough to address the 1/4" dowels I needed to cut. I can easily upgrade this to a higher fence/sled for larger stock - 1/2" dowels, for example.
