In a bathroom remodel I discovered that one of the wall studs behind
the tub is out about 1/4"
beyond the others. It's the stud right in the middle of the tub in
the length direction. The old
tub was apparently set a a slight angle because of this.
I realize I could just set the new tub strainght and out a 1/4", but
this would require trimming
another 1/4" off the floor tile. I had already trimmed it before
discovering the problem. It's
not an easy task, but doable.

out too far.
It looks like I'd have to plane about 1/4" of at the height of the tub
rim, then taper off
the trim to nothing about a foot or two above. What's the easiest way
