If hand tools are something you d like to explore someday, a block plane is the ideal tool for dressing that joint. Swiping the end grain with mineral spirits before planing softens it up a bit and makes it easier to plane. And sharp is everything with that operation. Short of that, a sanding block or rasp.

I would like to get some skills and experience with hand tools. I’ll have a look at block planes. Will a cheap big box store version do for something like this, or is it worth investing in higher quality as a beginner?
