Nice work. It looks like it was carved out of lexan/arcylic/plexiglass? The weight containers are interesting. Nice and compact.

Love the clear sled material. I have to admit that when I first saw the picture below, I thought you had built a monster sled out of chipboard! :laughing:

Thank you for the details. How much weight do you have on the sled?

Very interested in your design. I have a lot of 1/4" smoked Lexan that I’d love to use.

Dust collection is the 340 part.

But I don’t use it because of the AEG router and the BOSCH vacuum make a lot of noise in my shop.

looks beautiful, just worred that plastic will become foggy and scratched up. a round UHMW shim underneath the sled might help prevent that.

Very nice, it is like artwork, post all the pictures you like I will enjoy every one of them!

I decided to build this MeticulousMaynard version because I found this wear on my plunge router base.
