Avoid these 7 common mistakes when using a router sled to flatten a live edge slab. There are many different designs of router sleds out there, but here I show you a simple design that will work every time. The best part is you can just build it out of plywood scraps from around your shop! You don’t need a fancy or expensive router sled to be able to get great results and end up with nice even slab surface.

I am an engineer by day and a woodworker by night… usually after the kids are in bed and before the neighbors call the cops!

I have a passion for building things out of wood and all things woodworking. I am always looking for new projects that look fun and challenging. My woodworking inspiration comes from my kids, my wife, and the forests around my house. I consider myself a serious hobbyist and I hope you can learn something and get inspired from the projects and mistakes that I make. I will also show you how I organize and work in my small shop in 1 bay of my garage. I will share videos of my past, current, and future woodworking projects with the goal of getting you out in the shop making sawdust!
