I enjoy making jigs and sleds and for the table saw, and most of my sleds have involved wooden runners. I like to make them myself.  They're cheap and because they are wood, it is easy to mount them with screws. 

But I'm always open to new things. The plastic runner shown is high density polyethylene that is cut from a common plastic cutting board I purchased on Amazon here. The advantage is that it is stable material, can be machined with common woodworking tools, and mounted with screws just as I would one made of wood.

One cutting board will supply a number of runners, enough to last the typical woodworker a long time, or enable sharing with friends.

Make, fix and create. Help others get the point.
