    Small Router Plane

    Made this for mortising small hinges, etc. It's sized to use Stanley 71 irons. Cherry and Baltic Birch ply.

    Excellent Jim, once again I am reminded that I love home made tools.

    So you say you use it for hinges, am I correct in presuming then that you first chop the edges of the hinge location before using the router plane to lift the remains out? Love the cherry
    cheers

    I scribe the edges of the hinge with a striking knife, the use the little plane to remove the wood within the lines.

    Pretty much, but I've seen very similar ones over the years. The good old-fashioned 'Hag's Tooth' or 'Mother-in-Law's Tooth.' Mine might be a tad smoother than those...

    From my #71, of course! Seriously, though, Lee Valley has them, and I think Highland Woodworking does, too.

    Small Router Plane

    Very cool. For some reason I don't do well building small items. Fat fingers or something. This looks as attractive as it it useful!
