    OK, here are a couple of photos. The key is to make sure the outer edge of the router bit is in the same plane as the shoe that rides on the panel, or just a smidgeon shy.

    I use a Festool MFK700EQ for exactly this. A Festool version of John's setup above.

    I also made up a version like John's, but used a laminate trimmer to keep it lightweight.

    The Lipping planar is awesome! Just when I think I have all the tools I need, I find this. It is expensive, but might be worth it in the long run. I think I'll experiment with a few of these other ideas, and then see how bad I "need" the lipping planar.

    Justin, if you're going to be doing a reasonable amount to a lot of this technique, a dedicated tool could be a good investment.

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    I trimmed all of the solid wood and iron on edging for my kitchen cabs with a flush trim bit on my router table with a tall fence.
    NOW you tell me...

    I just picked up one of these https://www.fastcap.com/product/little-lipper

    Look around for someplace besides FastCap to buy it. FastCap's shipping is too high.

    Just donít let it be Amazon! The price on the web site is 38, the price on Amazon is 58. Heh.

    Made this little device for my PC690 many moons ago. Adjust router so it just leaves a slight lip, adjust bearing depth so it doesn't go into the plywood, then just run it over it. Then just a sanding and viola.

    It's cool to see all these well thought out innovations/jigs.

    Start at 6:10 to see this fence perform flush cuts.
    watch it all to see easy taper cuts, tenon making etc.

    I just use a hand plane, easier and less scary that a router.

    Thank you to everyone who posted. The all the solutions are great. I think I will give the FastCap Lipper a try. I'm really temped by John TenEyck's jig, and the Festool MFK700EQ. My only reservation with the MFK700, is the limited cutting depth. One of my projects in process is a record shelf. I have Sapele veneered plywood with solid Ash to wrap the plywood edges with. My Ash edge wrap is 1.25" x 1.25". The Festool live video I watched last night, said the max depth on the MFK700 was 5/8". Does anyone know if I could use the MFK700 to flush cut 1.25" deep in 2 passes?
