I have hundreds of 1/4" x 1/4" strips of wood.
I would like to stain these a rainbow of different colors. Each strip would be stained a single solid color. Then glue the strips together. Literally, making a rainbow from the different strips of wood.
My question is, no matter how tight and smooth I clamp them together, there is going to be minute edges where the different strips join together.
How could I sand them after the stain is on (which I assume is not the right plan of attack)?
Or, how could I clamp them together in such a way so that they are extremely smooth without sanding?
I hope this makes sense.
