My first thought is that purposefully oversizing then trimming to fit should be avoided for normal work. It's an exceptionally slow process and so I tend to avoid it for anything other than exposed through tenons that require a planed finish for reasons of appearance.

Sneaking up to a fit with a router plane requires use of two reference faces which is a poor practice.

Learning to use single reference faces and square corners is an important part of doing consistently accurate work quickly.
