I’ve resumed working on my Roubo workbench, which means timber frame-sized mortise and tenons. I recently sold my rabbet block plane. I bought it hoping it would do double duty as both a block plane and a shoulder plane. It was a good block plane but I didn’t like it at all as a rabbet/shoulder plane. While working a tenon like in this photo, for example, the low profile makes the plane too hard to hold. The tall shoulder plane works great in my hands. This plane is on loan from a friend.
