I attached a
1 1/2" strip of red oak to the edge of multiple layers of plywood in order to make the plywood more rigid. Altogether, the three layers of plywood are 1 3/8" thick. This means that the wood strip is 1/8" too thick, so I need to shave that off.
I came up with the idea to use my oscilating tool with wood blade, but this oak is tough to cut through. I've only been able to shave off about 5" before I gave up. In addition to being hard to cut, it burns the holy heck out of the wood to the point that I am wondering if it's actually going to catch fire or combust (although I do love the smell of burning wood).
I tried a chisel and it's a lot easier, but it doesn't do a very clean and even job. I would like to shave off the edge of this so that it's flush to the surface of the plywood. The oscilating tool seems to do the best job, but at the risk of burning my house down.
Feel free to edit this question's title if you think it's too localized. I also couldn't find any other good tags, so feel free to add those, too.
