I have built my first walls, and put paneling up on them; didn't feel up to
drywalling yet, maybe next project.
On an outside corner, the paneling on one wall sticks out an inch past the
perpendicular wall; so I have to trim it back. How is that done?
If this were a woodworking project I would get it close with a jigsaw and
then run a flush trim router bit down it to get it perfect. But it is
carpentry, and I don't see a good solution, except being careful with a
First the shoudas.
You should have set the panel in place and marked
it, taken it down, sawed along your marked line,
and nailed/glued it in place.
I suggest you get one of those Japanese saws that
you use for trimming the bottoms of door and have
no set on one side so it won't scratch what the
lies against. They are pull saws. Test it first;
some times a tooth or two is over just enough to
make a scratch line.
I used the flush trim bit for most of it and a Japanese saw for the top and
bottom. I've got to get a decent Japanese saw though; mine actually had
trouble going through the paneling. I have completely given up on using it
to trim pocket hole plugs, which what I bought it for.
