edge guide

I added an edge guide to my 1/8 in. rabbeting plane so that it will cut a groove a precise depth and distance from the edge of a board. This is a special purpose tool (designed and made myself) to use in making sliding top boxes of the type used to contain Froebel's gifts. The groove is required for the lid to slide in opening the box.

On Monday, my fellow teachers at the Clear Spring School will exercise their hands, minds and tools in a learning  and sharing time having to do with Kindergarten and the extension of play into the upper grades. This tool is one that we will put to use.

Make, fix, create and adjust schooling so that others play likewise.
