All of us have a couple old planes we picked up at a yard sale and never use. I turned a couple of mine into something useful: A small rabbet plane for fine tuning tennons and rabbets, and a big Jack Rabbet plane for larger rabbets.
It took a bit of modification to make the iron come out the side of the plane body, but it only took a few hours to make them both. They are going to get new wooden fittings today (so this is a wooden project :)
The entire process is featured on the latest episode of Blue Collar Woodworking:
