The router plane gives us the ability to register off one surface and create another accurately parallel surface a given distance below it.
In the woodworker’s workshop, a router plane is a really useful tool to have for cleaning up the bottom of housings and trenches or truing and levelling tenon cheeks with remarkable accuracy and without clouds of airborne dust.
This small router plane from Quangsheng has a cast stainless steel body, so it won’t rust. It is broad enough to give support on a trench up to 40mm wide and the open design offers excellent visibility and shaving clearance.
The cherry handles give a little more purchase when pivoting the router for chommelling out material and a broad, low-profile brass knob makes adjustment quick and easy without restricting your view of the cutter.
The sides of the main cutter are beveled to the full depth, so you can get under the shoulders of sliding dovetails, tapered dovetails or even half blind and secret mitred dovetails.
A 6mm V point cutter gets right into internal corners and two tiny 2.5mm versions are ideal for fiddly purfling and inlays.
