Some will tell you it is possible. I always sand at 120 and 150 regardless of whether it was hand planed, power planed, or cleaned up with a card scraper. It gives me consistent results, with no surprises when it come time for finishing. This is the main reason I do it that way. I have been burned before with tearout in QSWO from hand planing. Quartersawn oak just doesn’t hand plane like walnut or cherry. It machines well though.
