Default What is the use of this wooden hand plane?


I picked up a couple of wooden hand planes over the wknd. I can figure
out what most of them were use for except this one.

It has a built in fence so the plane runs along one end of a piece of
wood. It cuts a 1/4" rabbit. The next 1/4" is left untouched followed
by a 1/2" dado. Both the dado and rabbit are about 1/2" deep.

So when I tested the plane out it cut a 1/4" rabbet and a 1/2 dado
spaced 1/4" apart.

Any idea what the plane was used for?
