I wanted a router plane but didn’t really need one so i watched a couple videos on youtube and thought i would give it a go. This is what i made out of one piece of left over red oak. I found a couple old door knobs at an antique shop and tapped them for handles, flattened the sole and put a threaded insert in the back so a thumb screw could be used to stop the blade. The blades are some old Allen keys that I ground down and sharpened. I used some pieces that i could clamp on the top of the sharpened Allen keys for a depth stop. The front of the mortise that the key goes down has a piece of steel on the front of it to help it stay in line. It was a lot of fun to try and has came in handy. hope this is useful and that you have a good day.
