I have made thousands of moldings with molding planes over the last forty years. None have been sanded. Sharp moldings that were painted decades ago still look plenty sharp today.

With molding planes, short lengths of custom molding can be made for very little if the worker has experience. A six head molder is very nice if you're making 2000 feet of stuff, and I have friends and colleagues who do this kind of work. But for small runs the set up time is a deal breaker.
