Hey everybody. I’m working on a chair and needed a way to cut in a small, thin recess on some parts. After some thought (and helpful suggestions from others), I made a small router plane that holds a 1/8″ chisel. I started with a piece of 2×4, squared it up and cut one end at 45°. Then cut a 1/8″ slot vertically up the angled end, just big enough to fit the 1/8″ chisel. Put the chisel in the slot, then screwed a piece over the chisel and voila – a router plane.
If anybody wants to read more about this, I blogged about it at tinyshopww.blogspot.com in the post entitled “Nana’s Dining Chair Rebuild, Part 6: Some Details”.
