I recently finished a pair of grooving planes based on the design shown in FWW by Matt Kenney. A combination of purpleheart and lemonwood was used. The planes will create a 1/8th (3mm) groove 1/8th in from the bottom of box. Left and righthand versions allow for differing grain directions. Using these is a nice alternative to the usual router approach. They also make a very satisfying project!
