If you have a woodworking piece that you want sanded to a completely uniform level, try crafting your own shop-made abrasive plane. With a belt sander, it’s difficult to control and you can end up with highs and lows in your wood, but an abrasive plane takes away this frustration and makes your job simple. Dave Munkitterick explains how to fasten a long strip of store-bought sanding paper to a flat two-by-four and shape a comfortable handle for a quick, handy tool that will give you the smooth finish your piece deserves.
