This is an adjustable grooving plane for drawer bottoms or wherever you need a groove. The cutter is 1/4 inch. So it cuts a 1/4 inch groove up to 1/2 inch deep. I made this tool for GR8HUNTER, in the Summer 2017 Surprise tool Swap. It was really fun.

I have mixed emotions because of this – on one hand, I regret not jumping in for the chance to become the proud owner of one of the things displayed from the swap. On the other, I’d have been embarrassed to show my contribution, after seeing the things others made.

Hey GR8HUNTER, I’m glad you liked them. For the logo I used the toner transfer method. Basically just print out what you want to say (mirrored) on a laser printer(something with toner) then use acetone to rub it on

Sorry I missed this Josh. This is a fantastic plane buddy. Would be happy to add it to my arsenal for sure.

Josh that looks like a solid user with tight tolerances and a nice finish. Excellent work. Nice touch with personalizing it too!

Ah I have my old account back now. This plane looks wonderful and useful. Any chance of seeing how it was made or getting a tutorial? Where the the blade come from?
