    While looking through some you tube videos, I came across a well-known hand woodworker using a wooden plane specifically made for this purpose. He was selling them through his website but they were very expensive. I decided to make my own as I was in the process of making a storage cabinet with 4 drawers. I made the body out of hard maple and bought the iron from LV for around $7. It cuts a 1/4” groove 1/4” deep and 3/8” from the bottom of the drawer. A fun little project and always satisfying to use a handmade tool.


    Yeah, Fine Woodworking #219 did an article on how to throw together such a plane about 6 years ago, and they are super useful, since drawer grooves are so often the same. The article recommended making a pair of planes so you can always cut with the grain, and I took that advice.


    What a great idea! And your implementation looks fantastic too!
