Topic tags/keywords: question finishing

I am planning to glue a few pieces together, I’m just wondering how to go about it. If i glue them together, how do i sand everything to make it uniform and to remove all the glue?

Any help is appreciated

You could put a couple coats of your final finish on the face of the wood before you glue the edges. Glue will wipe right off and a VERY light sanding shouldn’t affect the color.

Alignment is the key, use splines or tongue/groove. You can also “hide” any misalignment with a shallow “V” groove at the joint. This is all to avoid any sanding.

Perfect. Thanks for the advice. Will try the final finish technique.
