Hello Rusty, This is one of those times that a radial arm saw is very handy, I use a sanding plate with 100 grit paper glued on, and stop the pulling of the saw. Just slowly move the piece against the blade lightly, and after a few times, you will have a nice finish. I think that you can go to 120, grit if necessary. If you don't have one, and your going to do a lot of sanding, you could use a thicker old blade, and do the same. However, you would need to use a fence attached to the saw fence, to make a backing plate, and cover the teeth, or a bad accident could result. Then , you could move it against the fence, to sand. Will work nicely if you use light pressure on the work piece, and keep the work moving. I haven't done it, but i have seen a person use the saw table for it. Just be very cautious
