A little grooving

My new plow plane arrived…after a quick cleanup, I put it right to work.

I clamped all four rails together to mark out the mortises before plowing the grooves for the panel. I wanted to plow the grooves first to help guide the chisel later when I chop the mortises.

I set the plow against the reference and put it to work. You can see from the mound of shavings just how much work it was. A couple of times I had to put the plane down to cool off, as it was too hot to touch.
