Following up on some suggestions in another current thread, I spent a little time on the Lee Valley site learning about their bevel up smoothing planes.
I was amazed at how thin the shavings can be with such a plane. It got me to wondering if it would be practical to final-finish veneered plywood with such a plane.
I had figured that either sandpaper or a scraper were the only viable methods, but was wondering if any of you regularly use a smoothing plane on veneered plywood?
If so, does it work only with a homogenous straight-grained veneer, or would it work with a highly figured veneer?
In addition to the above, I have these followup questions:
-- Last week I finally got my $*i# together. Unfortunately, it was in my shop, so I will probably never find it again.
