Since I barely use mortise and tenon joinery in my projects, the purchase of a shoulder plane is not justified. Too expensive. However, to get appropriate joints without such investment, I came up building what I could also call a shoulder sander.
The strip of sandpaper is simply sandwiched between the two blocks of wood with the two screws.
It is essential that one edge of the sandpaper be flush with one edge of the blocks of wood to be able to sand flush to the shoulder.
The remaing sanding strip, non used, overhangs on the opposite side. The unused part of the strip can be repositionned or pivoted to get new fresh and clean grits.
Not my best device, but this is an easy to use cheap tool to get more than just safistying results.
