Simple noob question: cutting 2x4's to length, need to make a tight fit (no two the exact same length) so often need to trim 1mm to 4mm (say 1/16 to 1/8th inch) off the end.
Without a dropsaw or skillsaw, what's a good way to do this? (lengths cut with handsaw) Never used a plane - is it a good tool for this job / do they cut across the grain?
Currently using a random orbital w/ 40 grit. Does the job but there has to be a better way.
