This is my second Shop-Made Plane. Inspired by Mafe’s post below.

It’s a quarter inch grooving plane. Got it done in one evening. Its Birch with a Walnut wedge. Finished with dark wax. Works great! I think I will use it when I am working on an upcoming box I want to make for father’s day. Sometimes it’s a drag to set up the router since I don’t have a dedicated table set up. And sometimes you just don’t want all that noise and dust.

Hope this inspires someone else.

that looks like a pretty neat idea to use a chisel as the plane blade, I have never seen that before.
great job
