I am going to try my hand at turning a pen and have these mesquite strips that when laminated will be just the right size to turn. My question is do i need to sand both sides of the strips smooth before gluing them up or can i leave them a little rough to hold the glue better? Any tips would help greatly, since i have a limited amount of these strips and dont really want to waste any. Thanks

Jay I know you posted this a while ago but I was wondering what you wound up doing. I would think that a smooth uniform surface would turn a better pen (the joint between laminations should be less obvious). A bit of sanding shouldn't make the pieces too small.
