My available woodworking time is limited and so is my skill level. Building a plane sounds like something I’ll attempt much further down the road. It’s good to know that building your own planes is feasible.

I’m still checking the web for information on plow planes. I am glad I got nudged into the plow plane direction, it seems like a more versitle tool that I would get a lot more usage out of instead of just a tongue and groove plane.

So my question from earlier:

If I’m looking to make a hinge mortise for a small box or small decorative cabinet, should I pick up a small router plane? Or do you more experienced folk just use a chisel?

Thanks!
