If you were making a pair of wooden tongue & groove planes…would you make the grooving (simple plow plane ) first and use it to plow the groove in the tongue cutting plane? Or is another method better?

That makes sense. A t&g set plow is made to set the groove the same distance from the top of the board. So the tinge and groove always falls in the same place.
