I've just b******
ed up the replacement bottom rail of a sash window I
It's 3.5 inches wide and I needed to reduce the thickness of the wood
I'd bought by about 5/16 across the whole of that width.
My powerplaner's base is about 2.5 inches wide so I cant do it in one
pass across the whole width - I tried working from both sides and then
got into a mess - I've ended up with a much thinner piece :-(
I don't know why I didn't stop when I hit the scribed lines! - some
sort of "well if I do it gently it'll just take out the high points in
the middle" muddled thinking.
I have got a big hand jack plane but the sole plate on that is
slightly narrower than the power plane - however - would I be better
off using that for final cuts?
So - what's the technique/best tool to do this job? - I haven't got
access to a thicknesser...
So annoying - I have to wait until Monday to get more wood ... Oh well
- there's plenty of leaves need raking up!
