Over at Woodnet there was a question regarding how to best to cut a drawer bottom groove. Being the intrepid pack rat that I am, I delved into my pack and ratted out this Sargent #269 Drawer Bottom Groove plane. It cuts a 3/8" groove and only a 3/8" groove. Apparently the furniture maker did not feel like taking special orders from the customer. Everyone got a drawer with a 3/8" bottom.
Till next and if not, Happy New Year!
