1. When using the guide, are holding the plane such that the blade never contacts the 2×3 guide piece? Likewise, are stopping your cut before the blade reaches the plywood? It seems like both the 2×3 and the plywood would eventually get a few shavings taken out of them, and with on-going use that this could eventually compromise the precision of the jig (but maybe this is no big deal as it can easily be remade).

    1. I asked Paul and his reply is below:

      We endeavour to keep the plane slightly skewed so the rear of the sole registers against on the 2 x 3s and the blade simply skims the surface of the wood being squared. However we do see this 2 x 3 surface as being somewhat sacrificial and the simple correction can be made at any time by replaning the surface.
