Veneer Doors

What is the best method of taking some off the bottom of veneered oak doors. Using an electric planer has resulted in lifting the veneer slightly
Thanks

I suggest using a belt sander to get the final bit off.

Adding to this technique, use a decent sized sander like a 4" x 24" and clamp a couple of pieces of waste wood on either side (scoring the line first) at the finish line to aid in keeping things square. Works wonders on the flimsy (ahem!) lower cost items from the box stores. HTH

If you mean making the door shorter (rather than thinner), you should first score the veneered surface with a straightedge and a utility knife along at the desired cut. It would be best to cut entirely through the veneer, but even a partial cut will result in a much cleaner cutline.
