Probably the best way to avoid snipe is to use a sacrificial piece of wood ahead and behind the actual one(s). Also, if you have multiple pieces, over lap them through the planer. So feed the lead in sacrifice, then your pieces, then the tail end sacrifice all in one uninterrupted stream.

Also, a scraper is a great tool to learn how to use. Done right, the surface can be smoother than sanding.

If it`s your planer and you can slow it down that helps with the ripples. Otherwise it`s a lot of sanding or a combination like Stick suggested.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks for that Stick and Phil.

Using a smoothing plane, won't the shavings removed start to alter the dimensions of the work piece? Or on the original do I allow a couple of mm to allow for this?

I've been reading about palm random orbital sanders and the air powered type. Then using sand paper to remove any little squiggles left from that to get to the required finish?
Cheers.

sanded, scraped or hand plane it's still material removed...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...

I know little about planes, No 5, 6 etc. What size, type of smoothing plane would I be wanting for a door stile say 100mm wide x 40mm deep? Is a smoothing plane suitable for cleaning up the edge too? Just looking I've seen 22 inch long smoothing planes, that wouldn't do.
Thanks.

Do you mean a continuous length of timber under the board I want to plane, extending out the front and rear of the board? Or are you saying just a short section under each end of the board, extending a bit from the ends of the board?
Thanks.
