Homemade Router Plane

Router planes are amazing tool, but they are also largely misunderstood. And that's a shame, because they are extremely useful in both a hand-tool and a power-tool workshop! Rather than cutting profiles, as a modern router does, a router plane is for cutting to depth with precise accuracy. They can be used to make the bottom of a table saw dado perfectly flat. They can fine tune a rabbet or a tenon. Their uses are nearly unlimited. Below you will find a step-by step guide, complete with dozens of photos, to help you make your own fully functional, micro-adjustable router plane. Happy cutting!

You can help support all the woodworking goodness Stumpy and the gang does by purchasing a set of plans for this project! A HUGE amount of work went into designing and building it, including 3D modeling, creating and testing prototypes, making changes and doing it all again... why go through all that trouble when you can follow Stumpy's detailed plans? They include dimensional drawings, materials/cut lists, exploded views, even photographs and step by step instructions! You can download them to a computer, tablet or phone, even print them out to take with you into the shop.

Below are some samples of what our new woodworking plans look like-
