No Chamfer Plane? No Problem.

I had to chamfer some small frame pieces but didn’t want to simply hold the pieces in my hand and run a block plane over them. Since I don’t have a chamfering plane I had to improvise.

Thanks for your time.

Awesome idea! If you were to add an additional fence on the other side with the opposite 45’ fence (making a 90’ V) you could set a uniform chamfer.

Thanks for the idea.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I think I’ll give Iamjacob’s idea a try to see what happens. Take care.
