Router job - possibly

Postby sargan » Sat Jul 15, 2017 10:29 pm

I have an 8x4 sheet which I have edged with oak strip .... the strip was about 3/16 wider than sheet thickness.
Set it flush on front .... so want to trim flush the back ...

Initially I thought I could use a bearing guided flush trimmer bit .... but don't think holding router in horizontal plane with only 1" thick running face is a good idea.
I could put board on edge ... router would be vertical ... but same problem of keeping it steady with only 1" wide board.


Is there a tip or technique for this ?

For other parts of the job I will cut oak so it is same thickness as ply.

block plane with a sharp blade - would take about 10 minutes.

I thought about planing .. just saw risk of gouging face of sheet.

Assume you mean using by setting a temporarytimber along face - parallel to edge and running guide along there with router offset?
