A simple sanding jig i made for my table saw
Build on a board with a guide to slide in the mitre groove and a second board on top which slides in a groove cut into the top of the bottom board .
This way i can control the jig in front to back and side to side motion during sanding .

I’ve seen a similar jig laid sideways used on a router table with a hand crank used to turn the blank. Both ideas are great lathe replacements for the once in a while turner or the shop too small for a lathe.

Great idea, what’s the final product? Candle holder, test pieces?
