Im a begin woodworker and i have a question is there a way to make a groove that is with the grain without a plow or combination plane.
I don’t have a lot of specialty tools so i don’t have a nr78 or a 71 i only have a wooden router plane with an iron that is to wide.
Has anybody an idea for this problem.

I have tried this out.
And it worked really well.
But i have one other question will this technique still work wen the stock gets longer.
Because it will be very hard to balance your saw so do you or someone els know a way to do this .
You can clamp a long length of wood next to the groove to use as a saw guide?
At some point you’ll need to get a plough plane though.
Get an old one, like a Record 44. You should be able to pick one up on eBay with cutters for £40-£50 or thereabouts.
No need to buy a new one, they are too expensive.
Or look at The Vintage Tool Patch on Facebook, there is a weekly auction. Good stuff and good prices.

I have tried all your suggestions they worked well.
I also tried to make a grooving plane myself i tried wood by wrights design and worthefforts version they worked reasonably well
But after looking online i found a record 50 with all the irons so i can now make grooves and beads with ease.
