Sure, there are a handful of options available to trim up wood veneer edges.  But the easiest way is to use a purpose-made tool: a veneer trimmer.  This little $7 plastic trimmer slices veneer flush in both directions and can accommodate most edging thicknesses up to 3 mm.

They’re simple and cheap, but provide a nice clean way to get edges looking good without extra hassle.  It’s not a flashy rig but it might be better than trusting your hand to a razor knife and a straight edge — and it’s faster, too.

    That sounds good and all, but $0.99 a blade seems a little much. It’d be different if they used standard utility knife blades etc. Then again, there could be some special quality about the blades. Just a thought.

    Oh, yeah, the blades are only beveled on one side so you get a flat and strait cut and Amazon does have a 5 pack for just under $2. Better than I first thought, I guess.

    Looks cool, but what are the other (normal) ways of trimming veneer? knife? router? pull saw?
