Step 7: Shaping the Sled

The next step is to cut the back corner of the sled off. Although I used a track saw for this task, a straight edge and circular saw would work just as well. Verify the path of the blade and ensure that there are no screws in the path that were installed in the previous step.

Put the sled back on the saw and cut a Kerf about 1/3 of the way down the sled. Do not cut all the way through. This will be used to help align the inner bed.
