To make small rabbets I build this unique plane.
Needed small rabbets for bottoms of boxes or drawers.
The rabbets are at most 0.25” deep and 0.25” wide.
Since I can plane with both sides of the plane i can simply plane both board sides with one plane.
Wood is from scrap maple and white ash, blade 1”, 40 deg bed angle.

The penny makes a good striking pin too, for fine adjustments.

I like it, welcome to LJ.
