Options to fix mistake


Recommended Posts

I am making a planter from some plans in Wood magazine. Here is the current state:


The next step is to attach a frame around the top. The first piece of the frame is the piece that is currently sitting on top of the planter. In this close up shot, you can see that the face rails are proud of the side molding.


I need to get these flush so that I can get the frame to sit on top of them. Any ideas on how to get these flush? I don't have any hand planes. I'm thinking about clamping a board to the side and using a pattern bit in the router. I could also rabbit the back of the frame to sit over the proud parts, but that would leave the back part of the frame only about an eighth of an inch thick.

I thought I would check to see if anyone else had any ideas for me.
