Dear fellow woodworkers:
I have a full wall cabinet (84″) that is 1/2″ too tall for the spot it will be permanently placed in. Should I flush trim the edge with a router or other method. I want to make sure the edge is square on all four sides since I will be cutting from the bottom of the cabinet. I was thinking of using a marking gauge to etch 1/2″ from the four sides and then use a flush trim bit against a square board at the mortise line in order to cut exactly 1/2″ all around. Does this seem like the right way to approach the problem or is there a better method?
