I have some thin pieces of wood I re-sawed that I want to use for my business in a “sample” book so clients can see the different species that are available. These pieces are about 1/4” thick, around 10” long and I want them taken down to about an 1/8”. I know if I try to send them through my planer they will explode(speaking from experience) so I was wondering if any Lumberjocks with a drum/thickness sander near Northern Virginia would be willing to sand them down. I’m in Charles Town, WV and about equal distances to Hagerstown, Frederick, and Winchester. If your are able to do it, send me a p.m. And I am willing to pay you for your time.

I just planed some oak and mahogany to 1/8” today with no explosions but if your not comfortable with that just attach them to a thicker board with double faced tape and send them through the planer. I have a Ridged 3 blade planer if that makes a difference. Hope this saves you a trip and some $.
