Do it all the time

Posted by Charile Jones on Sep 27, 2005

I always start my plywood scarf joins using a power planer. I rough down the angle with that, then finish with a a #4 sharpened really well or a block plane. No big deal. If you should happen to screw up, you can just cut off a half inch of ply and try again.

I finalize the surface with a redwood float covered with 100 grit sandpaper, using that as a block sander.

Of course on 3 and 4 mm stuff it's probably a bit of overkill- the block plane would do the job in 5 - 10 minutes or so.
