Default flush trim on the router table

Hi folks. Glad to be among experts. My first post:

I've glued 1/4 inch strips of 7/8 wide oak to the front and back edges of a 3/4 inch oak plywood panel that's about 20" wide including the strips. I want to flush trim these on the router table (Kreg table and fence). I thought this would be a snap...

I'm trying to use the fence to keep the wide panel vertical, but edge of the quarter inch strip won't fit under the fence, so it prevents the panel from going vertical. Do I need some kind of aux fence, or ??

You can put your bit in a hand held router & trim your pieces flush. I think for your situation this will work out better.

You need an auxillary fence that sits above the table and is tall enough to keep your panel vertical. I have a book showing the same thing with a table saw. Clamp an auxillary fence to the main fence with enough clearance for your edgeband and set the auxillary fence just shy of flush with the edge of the blade. Raise the blade into the auxillary fence high enough to cut the edgeband. When done, sand the the few thousandths off the edgeband to get flush

I agree with James. Sandwich a 2x4 or 2x6 between two shelves. Clamp the sandwich and the assembly to a bench and now you have a stable perch for the router. Trim the inside edges, turn the boards around, repeat and two shelves are done with the minimum fussing around. Be careful with router direction.
