I needed something to flaten the bottom of the recess, so I got an used HSS bit, cut it with Dremel and fixed it to a scrap wood… there is a groove to hold it in the right angle.

If it works, it isn’t dumb. It actually looks pretty handy and easy to build. I wish I had one for stopped groves, etc. Looks kind of like a wood plane cut in half.

There is nothing to laugh at here, it is a great solution to a working situation. I didn’t say “woodworking problem” here, because its not a problem to a good woodworker, it’s a situation to be overcome, and you did, quite well!
It s actually a router plane, and one designed to fit the need. Nice work here, very well thought out.

I find it’s harder to make simple, uncomplicated things that work really well. Super job!

Yup, seems fine to me. Google Paul Sellers poor mans router, he uses a chisel poked through a board all the time.
