Woodsmith Double-Duty Planer Sled Plans

Salvage your warped boards with this no-fuss planer sled.



Unfortunately, warped boards are a challenge woodworkers encounter all too often. But if a board isn‘t warped too badly, it can be salvaged with a planer and this sled. This sled supports the board so it doesn’t flex under the pressure of the feed rollers. The board ends up with a flat face. The sled is sized to fit a 12″ planer and will cradle a board up to 48″ long. It has five levelers that can be positioned along the length of the board and adjusted up and down.
