Sander ChamferingComments (0)
This article is from Issue 49 of Woodcraft Magazine.
The problem with router
chamfering bits is that they tend to tear out end grain, so when chamfering the
end of a board, I prefer to do the job by sanding. To guide the workpiece, I
employ a scrap wood jig with a tall fence clamped at a 45° angle to the face of
my stationary belt sander. After marking the desired chamfer on the board’s
end, I then place the workpiece on edge against the fence. With the tool
running, I ease the end against the belt, chamfering the long edge to the line.
I then flip the workpiece and chamfer the opposite edge.
