Kerfing plane continued

The kerfing plane is sort of done. I did some bad thinking and ended up with a less than elegant shape for the handle, but it works better than it looks. 

In the first picture you can see the kerf I made along one edge of a board. 


Tom Fidgen adapted his to have an adjustable fence, and that is of course useful. Mine is set to slightly more than 3 mm and that is fine for uke body material, but a bit thin for fretboards. 

Here you can see how I rip the board after putting a kerf around all edges. 


Believe it or not, but this rip saw has been subject to ridicule from my daughter Li. I can't see why.
