Even more sanding tricks

Sand uniform curves on your spindle sander

When making a pair of rockers recently, I wanted to ensure uniform width. But I found it difficult to accurately sand them freehand with my oscillating spindle sander.

The solution lay in the bull-nosed fence I use to saw curves on my bandsaw. I clamped the fence to my sander's tabletop, as shown left, with the desired width of my rocker between the abrasive spindle and the fence's nose. After carefully shaping the outside curve, I sanded the inside radius of each rocker by feeding it between the drum and fence.
