I cobbled up this disc sander jig to clean up the edges of small circular workpieces. It consists of a sled that rides on a base fixed to the table. To build the jig, first make the base and sled from 3⁄4"-thick plywood about 5" wide. To determine the length for both pieces, measure the distance between your sanding disc and the front edge of the tool’s table, and add an inch or so.
Arts & Crafts furniture has a lot going for it; not only is it handsome, but it’s also relatively easy to build. Though my design borrows from Stickley, Greene and Greene, and other designers of the period, a few changes give it a slightly different feel and look. Unlike many Arts & Crafts rockers that have flat upright backs, this one is canted and curved for comfort. This chair is made of cherry, which imparts a light look, but in quartersawn white oak it would be textbook Arts & Crafts. To add heft and substance reminiscent of Greene and Greene, try it in black walnut.
