I’m building a bookcase (first woodworking project) with the case and shelves made from red oak plywood and the face frame and shelf front and back edges from solid red oak lumber.
I am at a point in the construction where I’m about to attach the solid edges to the shelves and then build and attach the face frame but have a few questions. My plan is to leave the shelf edges and face frame slightly proud and then trim them flush with my router.
Here are my questions:
1. Is leaving the edges and face frame about 1/32” proud too much or just about the right amount?
2. Will my Dewalt 1 1/4 hp model DWP611 router have any trouble trimming 1/32” in a single pass?
Thanks for your help
