I made a kerf plane(poor man’s kerf plane) with a flush trim saw!

Since I wanted to take advantage of a flush trim saw that has no set, I just put the saw blade to a plywood by epoxy glue. It’s simple but it’s very useful.

The thing is, as all the part of the blade is touching (not angled) to wood and since it’s a very fine saw, the teeth get jammed by saw dust and it’s hard to move back and forth so I put the handle later.

My original idea was just to use it for making a groove like one for dado fitting but as the project is just 5min thing I decided to make a sliding dovetail jig.

It’s not as noobie friendly tool as I thought but it’s at least faster and more accurate than fabricating pieces by chisels for me.

Awesome job. I watched the video last night. Love the simplicity of the build, and can’t argue with the results!
