I’ve never tried it, but I would definitely do it this way if I needed thin strips jointed. I’d first cut the thin strips on my table saw, lay out whatever grit sandpaper you need to more than cover the length of the thin strip, use double-sided tape and tape it to something flat and firm (melamine / mdf comes to mind), then slowly sand away 2 to 3 strokes for a finished side. Repeat for the other and it should work out for an even strip. There might be better ways, but that’s just my method I came up with.
