You can make the joint look a bit nicer by applying packing tape along both sides of the joint to keep the thickened epoxy where it belongs with nice, straight edges. Also, rather than wait for the epoxy to cure, scrape it smooth and fair with a carbide scraper or, if you have them, cabinet scrapers. Trying to fair the epoxy on the joint with an ROS can sometimes lead to sanding through the top thin verneer of the surrounding plywood, causing abject grief and regret.

At any rate, be sure and case the joint before you do anything.
