It is made from pine (construction timber, probably spruce) so isn't likely to be accurate or durable but it seems to work
I tried it out on another piece of spruce and am having a couple of problems,
- I find it hard to control the depth of cut, tapping the chisel usually results in a very coarse shaving.
- The rebate depth is hard to control to get uniform depth from end to end, I guess I need to add a depth stop.
- The side wall tends to be very rough and has some shreds of shaving attached.
My reason for making this was to see if it would serve as a plough plane to make a new frame for a garden cold-frame. I need to make a housing (dado) to hold the plastic glazing. Since this isn't fine furniture I'm not too concerned but I do have the same problems I'd like to eliminate
Here's some early coarse shavings and some newer thinner ones
How can I improve the results I get?
