So yes, I know it is a short piece of wood and the groove isn’t that deep, but really I could care less about how long it takes to cut a groove and I’m not trying to make any statements about hand tools vs power tools. Honestly, the title just sounded fun and catchy. It is also a follow-up to one of my previous videos where I mentioned in the thumbnail that the plane “cuts in seconds” and I wanted to show that it really can cut a groove in seconds.
Also, I more so wanted to share this video because I think it is an absolute joy to use this plane. There’s something about the sound of cutting the groove and using a tool I made myself that is very satisfying. If you’ve never experienced cutting I groove this way, I strongly recommend doing it!
And if you’re looking for how to make one, watch how I made the one in the video here:
Also also, I wasn’t cutting some random piece of wood here, but actually cutting the groove for one of the rails on a frame and panel door I’m working on for a wall cabinet build. The build is the last in a series called “Building tools to build tools to build furniture”. You can watch the series here!
