The iron on wood tape works just fine all by itself. Just use your iron. Follow the procedure with a small wood block to keep it pressed down and allowing it to cool slightly. Don't add any other adhesives. Use a mill file almost flat to the panel to shear off the overhang with the edge of the file. Only use the push stroke, don't pull against the tape.

Using a flush trim bit in a router, or a utility knife can catch the grain on the tape and shear off sections. I wouldn't advise trying that.
