Dealing With Planer SNiPE

About: I am a teacher who enjoys environmentally responsible woodworking. Most evenings will find me in the shop working with my now 8 year old son Shay who is both my greatest helper and biggest fan.

We all know to cut long enough that planer snipe can be chopped off and tossed out but what if you forgot and need to run a board or the wood is too nice to waste?  By adding a sacrificial board to the mix you can make it through.

    Can't believe I've never thought of chucking a bit of sacrificial wood through! You've just saved me a lot of 2inch offcuts sir!
