WOOD - - IN THIS ISSUE OF WOOD - —Dan Martin, Galena, Ohio

Sand per­fect end bevels and more.

When a project re­quires mul­ti­ple spin­dles or other pieces with beveled ends, it be­comes quickly ap­par­ent if the bevels aren’t uni­form. With this quick-and-easy disc-sander jig, sim­ply ad­just the stop for the de­sired bevel, and place the work­piece where shown. Then, with your left hand on the han­dle and your right hand on the work­piece (right hand not shown for clar­ity pur­poses) use the han­dle to slide the platen and work­piece to­ward the disc. Sand all four bevels on one end, flip the work­piece end-for-end, and re­peat. Per­fect bevels ev­ery time!

For send­ing this is­sue’s Top Shop Tip, Dan re­ceives a Porter-Cable 20V MAX 8-Tool Combo Kit worth $350.
