Default Trimming a 1/8" in plywood

I have a piece of 3/4" plywood. I would like to make it square, in order to do this I might have to take off anywhere from 1/8-1/4" of the piece which bit should I use? John

I'd use a table saw.

Hi John

I would use the band saw because it's plywood...most come with a miter gage..
But you didn't say how big it is..

If it's big then the table saw with a sled and a New cross cut blade..(80 teeth or more)

So would I.
If you intend on using a router table as a jointer, then a compression bit should be used for plywood, if I remember correctly.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
