1. For making the groove, a Plow plane is what you want, not a router plane…

2. Another hand tool method (though not an efficient one) is to clamp a batton to the work to guiide your hand saw as you saw the long groove, one saw cut on each side, then chisel out the waste…sort of like they used to do to make a sliding dovetail…Like I said, probably not the way you want to go, but possible.

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
