In that sort of situation I take care with the
gluing to get the parts as close to flush
as possible and take off the excess using
a flush trim router bit in a router. If you
flush trim carefully all that’s needed after
is a little sanding after. 1” thick is a fair
bite to take out in one pass with a router,
so that’s why I recommend careful gluing
so there’s only between 1/32” and 1/16”
of material proud at the joint.

I would be concerned about the circular
saw not making a clean enough cut for
a glue joint.

Do you have a vice?

A handplane is among the cheapest and easiest ways to do it.

I don’t have a vice or a router… :( I also don’t have a stable work table. My “work table” is a plywood on top of a folding stand due to limited space.

My husband just got a Drummel tool, which supposedly can do routing. But can router be used to smooth out 2” side? I didn’t know that was possible…

Thanks!

Why not turn them around so the square side is facing forward.
