Simple carpentry question
I have a 16" piece of 2x4. I need to cut about 1/4" off of the wide side (so I really need a 1.25 x 3.5 x 16 piece of wood). What is the best way to do that? The guys at the hardware stores said they can't do it (at least not with any precision). I'd prefer a solution that doesn't require really expensive (or hard to store) tools, since this isn't something I'm going to do regularly, but I'm willing to buy a new tool if necessary (especially if it's relatively versatile).
