I finally got around to making the poor mans rebate plane, I’d highly recommend giving it a go, here’s a photo of it, so far I’ve used it to make some shiplap and it works surprisingly well.

Very nice! I made the same one a few years back when I needed one for a project, and I still pull it out occasionally. You paid a lot more attention to the aesthetics than I did!
Agree that everyone should have one, it was very easy to put together based on Paul’s video. I think it was the first tool I made, and its the only plane I’ve made.3 July 2018 at 3:44 pm #549098
thanks henry, the moment when you first see shavings is very satisfying, and knowing you’ve made it yourself is different to buying one, I am planning on making a depth stop for it as well soon, this was made in the space of a couple of hours work, if I can do it anybody can!23 July 2018 at 1:51 pm #549557Bill HallParticipant
Here’s a picture of the rebate plane I recently made from a pine 2×4.
Really fun project, especially working out how to prevent the stair stepping and clean shavings exiting from the depth stop. My chisel was really too short but got it all to work.
Definitely worth doing for the experience, even if you don’t need a rebate plane at the moment.

thanks for that bill, I never thought of the shavings having to escape out until your post, good point!
