Drywall - plywood outside corner

I have a rental property I'm fixing up that has some unfinished remodeling. In one area there is an outside corner - the edge of a piece of mudded/textured drywall on one face, and the face of unpainted 3/4 plywood on the other. I'll try to attach a photo. I'm going to prime and texture the plywood to be same as the drywall. The face of the plywood stands proud of the edge of the drywall, in an uneven way - almost flush to 1/4 inch proud. Wondering what is the best way to get a stable corner in this situation. Thanks for any comments.

About the only thing you can do... trim it with a 1" outside corner moulding, that is 3/4" inside / 1" outside.

Neighbor suggested that I just prime the wood, install outside corner bead and re-mud to feather out the corner on both sides, then apply texture. I did this and this seems to have worked well. Strong, stable corner.
