Sandpaper shooting

Wiley Horne--So. Calif.
Thanks Derek! Another excellent and well-illustrated technique for jointing thin stuff. The way Andrew does it, he has very positive control of everything being square and plumb.

Tom, of this forum, suggested to me once that, for his guitar-back joins, he sometimes uses a 'sandpaper plane'--which I took to be like a jointer, but with abrasive on the sole. I had occasion to try something like that while joining some strips of 1/8" thick satinwood. This sawn veneer mostly went together very well with the usual planing (it is easily thick enough to edge plane), but a couple times when I was having trouble getting it perfect end to end, I used a 4-foot milled-edge level with 300g PSA stuck to one edge. With the level on its side and the paper now vertical, it was like a long jointer for thins. Worked OK, but Andrew's is better because it is important that the sandpaper be very flat and hard-stuck to its carrying surface--in other words, no plushness to round the stuff you're edging.
