Clever way to surface thin strips
With hotmelt adhesive, spot-weld the strip to be surfaced to the square edge of a board that's approximately as wide as the workpiece. Now, feed the material safely through the jointer until you reach the desired thickness. (It helps to take thin cuts.) You can separate the pieces with a wooden wedge, provided you apply the hotmelt adhesive sparingly in small spots, not long beads.
