I have a Scioto coffin plane whose mouth is a little on the wide side. I'd like to glue a piece of wood inside the front of the throat to close it up, but I don't know if rubbing end grain against the face of my work is the best idea. Is there another way?

  • You could certainly glue in a cross-grain piece. Or simply ensure it stays level with or just inside the bottom of the plane...?

I believe people generally use an inlay on the sole to repair or close up the mouth.
