Topic tags/keywords: tip planer veneering

A while ago, someone asked about this process. My suggestions were what I do. But, Stumpy nubs just posted a new journal with this video by Nick Ferry. A better method of doing the job.

Hi Gene. For some reason the video would not open- probably our poor service here in the park.
anyway, when I plane thin wood, I use a plywood sled with a thin rail in the front and it works great!!

Cheers, Jim

Nope. Even here in the big city, it doesn’t work.

That’s odd Jim and Mark. Works for me out here in the wilds.
Just try searching YouTube for Nick Ferry. Then look for that video.
Jim, how you do it is essentially what he does only his sled is MDF. He gets down to 1mm in thickness.
