I made 3 tenon planes out poplar and red oak. The poplar one was the first and the “let’s see if I can do this” plane. To help it out I glued a piece of 1/8” red oak to the bottom for better wear resistance.
I made them with the irons from a plow plane. These planes eliminate the problem I had using my router plane and have it tip on me as I tried to plane big tenons.
These planes are all about a foot long and aren’t tippy at all. They clog a bit because they don’t have a throat opening but the make flat and even tenon cheeks.
