You can definitely sand faster than I did, but you can't outrun a plane with hand sanders, especially if you're looking for risk free. Sloppy machine sanding leaves fishhooks. Sloppy hand sanding leaves stray lines.

If I was to sand intentionally, the first step would be scraping instead of coarse sanding.

I've got dual mode (the biggest Bosch ros) plus a festool ets sander, and some quarter sheet Sanders. Sanding only is just a lost cause unless you get into stationary machinery.
