Tools for Fine-Tuning Joints
Sanding blocks: slow but simple
Uses: Reduce tenon thickness by sanding the cheeks, and make the shoulders even with each other as in the photo; smooth scoring from tablesaw-cut rabbets or dadoes or stub-tenon grooves for cleaner edges and a stronger glue joint; and adjust half-lap depths to make parts flush. For a curved sanding block to fine-tune coped ends on molding, wrap sand-paper around dowels of different sizes.
