I am a newbie to woodworking but have been doing relief an chip carving for about 10 years. I got it in my head that I would like to make some small boxes with carved decoration for sale and/or gifts. I also was determined to make the whole thing with hand tools.
The miters are a bit CHALLENGING, to say the least but that’s another post. Do I need a separate plane for across grain dadoes, with the grain grooves and rabbets? Or is there 1 plane that could do all of these or at least 2 of the 3?
I recently bought a Chinese plow plane from Japan Woodworker because of the price $62.00. The fence is very hard to adjust and keep adjusted so I will probably return it. Another lesson for, “you get what you pay for” You would think that by age 58 I would have learned.
Thanks for you help.
