Miter Cut Sled Project

Trying to create a prototype of a sliding top box similar to a pencil box...I hope to then mass produce some as gifts.

The primary purpose of this sled is to provide accurate and easily repeatable 45 degree cutoff.

No real preplanning...we just threw together a CTD sled...
