Tips to Flatten Small Pieces of Wood

For some of your construction or fabrication projects, you’ll need to flatten smaller pieces of wood. There are a number of options out there to help flatten wood pieces that are in a 6” square or less. What are some ways to get your wood the way you want?

You could make a sled for a wide belt to hold the wood in place to sand and smooth it down with a belt sander. You can use a planer in its place if a sander won’t cut it. Either way, using a jointer is a poor idea as you can easily lose the piece. For more flattening tips for small pieces of woodwork, click here:: Best Way to Flatten Small Pieces of Wood?
