I notice a lot of people making Craftsman furniture using “stiles” (Morris Chair, end tables and the like). I always had a tough time figuring our how to sand and scrape those little buggers. This is the jig I came up with. It’s simple and kinda self explanitory, but man does it make a difference for sanding and scraping! I struggled for a long time to figure out how to do these (little brain) so I thought if I can save someone from burning their fingers off on the sander,...well here’s what it looks like (a quick Sketchup drawing). I also posted the link in Google Sketchup Warehouse if anyone wants it.

Aren’t your fingers calloused over yet, Schroeder, from buffing them with the 150 grit? Me either. Good idea. I’ll have to make one of these. Might want to add some carpet or some kind of padding in the “groove”.
