The effect of the number of blades and the abrasive grain size of sandpaper on the surface roughness in wood materials obtained from Lombardy poplar (Populus nigra L.) and European black pine (Pinus nigra A.) were examined. A total of 220 samples were prepared for this purpose. The samples were subjected to roughness measurements according to TS 6212 EN ISO 4288. The values obtained were statistically analyzed and the results were interpreted. The best results among the sanded surfaces in roughness were obtained with 180-grit sandpaper on tangential cut surfaces for Lombardy poplar and with 220-grit sandpaper on tangential cut surfaces for European black pine. In the planed surfaces, the best result was obtained on tangential cut surfaces with 2 blades and a 5 m min^{-1} feeding rate for Lombardy poplar and European black pine.
