    I just used this in a pinch to hollow out a spot for my sharpening stones. It worked perfectly and surprisingly precisely! What a fantastic idea. Thanks!

    Thanks Pual, it’s a lot faster than trying to find (and setup) the router!

    Great handmade tool. I already have a router and I frequently use it for making dados. However, I can see the usefulness of this tool like a shoulder plane for fine tuning tenons especially when I cut them slightly too thick. But I already made a handmade shoulder plane using an old iron and some hard maple lumber stock.
