I am making a chest lid out of plywood; the first time I have used plywood
where the edges are exposed.
I put a 1/4" strip on the front and back. There I used a flush edge router
bit and had no problems.
The sides will be 1 1/4" wide. How do I trim those down? A hand plane? I
have one, but it is a piece of junk. Any other options?
