In the final installment of our four-part series on cutting dadoes with hand tools, George Vondriska teaches you how to properly use a router plane to finish up the dado that you’ve scribed, hand sawn, and cleared. The unique design of the router plane’s depth of cut allows you to cleanly cut away at the dado without worrying about chipping wood that you want to keep.
