Tom posted about planing end grain. There are several schools of thought but I thought I'd post a link to a video that shows end grain can be handled with many planes. At about the 2:30 mark I plane end grain with a 55 degree pitched small smoother.  So there ya go.

Yabbut....using a sharp plane is cheating. Wink

I just returned from a three hour detour your link sent me on. An entertainer who didn't want to entertain was the last stop. I sort of passed off Joni Mitchell after her months(?) with the Bay area rock scene. Too much Girly Dylan for me back then. But, in the interim she turned out good. 

I guess woodwork, and painting, and craft, and art all rely on inspiration and dedication to succeed. However, it never occurred to me that your planes lack "steering" (adjuster) levers; and hammers.
Heirlooms are self-important fiction so build what you like. Someone may find it useful.

I remember at one WIA using one of your shooting planes. It was by far the most excellent shooting plane I've ever used. I also remember at WIA one of your smoothers was the only one able to plane a knarly piece of wood without tearout. Keep up the good work, Ron.
Still Learning,

I don't. Why would one? Dovetailing end grain is one thing. That is mechanical. Why would you want to rebate end grain? It would end up a weak joint.

Well I am doing a little "How-to", if you care to look in at it...

However, the #78 was just to clean things square in the corner....Rebate was "Crafted" using first a mitre box..
[attachment=30598]
I think these are called shoulder cuts?   Seems me shoulder was involved, doing the cutting Rolleyes 
Then a wide chisel and a mallet got involved...
[attachment=30599]
I did also use that chisel to clean things up....Needed the rebate..

For the Blind Dovetails I happen to be working on...
[attachment=30601]
Decided to add a 4th spot...3 wasn't getting it Rolleyes 
[attachment=30602]
And the tails....
[attachment=30603]
dry fit of the 2 pieces....I seem to be getting the "Hang" of these....

Shot the end grain on the skinny edge...because a saw cut was off a bit out of square.   Normally,I'd use a different plane, but the #5 was still sitting out... Rolleyes

Oh weeeelllll
