Sand perfect end bevels

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!
