    As a newbee to woodworking this sled is fine and will be an addition in my shed in the next few days, question is however is there a way to thickness shorter pieces of timber, say 9" with maybe 2 or 3 at a time when the thicknesser manufacturer recommends minimum lengths of 12"

    With that jig setup aren’t you running it through backwards?

    Awesome video, do you have any videos on building a jointer jig with the table saw?

    Does the sled control snip?

    Wonderful.>>>ur2.pl/860 I have not had a chance to use it a lot, but the reduction in snipe is fantastic

    Thanks for the video. Now if I'm planing very thin planks how do you suggest I secure them to the sled? With hot glue gun?

    Very nice video. I especially appreciate your pacing. So many of these woodworking videos are either too rushed, or too chatty, or filled with uhs, ahs, and digressions. You get right to the point, proceed clearly and directly. And…no annoying music.

    unrelated question. Do you have an issue with dust being sucked in to furnace

    A variation on the theme … my planer has it's drive rollers in the top, above the board you'd be feeding through. Therefore, the cleat must be on the top, front of the sled. Don't ask me how I discovered this fact.

    Very Cool ! I have some foot wide red oak rough sawn boards that I need to surface for thirteen stair treads. I'll be giving your technique a tryout !!

    You have the end board screwed onto your sled to keep the board from sliding off the end of the sled; so why did you then put that end into the planer first? It seems it should be at the back.

    I have 15 teak boards 8" × 2" × 10 feet and some need attention. They are all rough sawn at present and I was going to make a steel frame to support a router to flatten one side. However I think your method is so simple and the hot glue seems foolproof. I have seen other more fussy ideas but yours seems really worth a firstvtry. All I have to do is buy a planer now. I'm in Asia expat so equipment is limited here. I do envy the Americans, you seem to be able to get anything there. Buying online for me can be complicated to get through customs and of course the extra tax is added. OH, I am making a large dining table. Cheers.

    Thanks for the video and the tips. My son and I built this simple sled today to help setup my new DW734. We used 3/4 MDF for the base and a strip of 1/2 birch ply for the "toe kick"; it worked perfectly.

    Great video. I'm just starting out in woodworking and can't afford both a jointer and planer. Would you say that I could get by without a jointer by using this technique and combining that with an "edge jointing jig" for the table saw?

    Thickness planer is on my list. Saving for it now. Can't wait until I get one. This sled will come in handy once I get one.

    Hi Matt…. I'm assuming this sled will eliminate planer snipe as well ?

    Matt, I'm using my wife's you tube and your idea is fantastic.  I will use it many times, as I am cutting lumber tomorrow.  Terry
