This seems like a simple problem and it probably is for someone with more know how than myself, but it's been driving me mad for the last day or two figuring out the best way to do it. I want to put stringing in a stool leg with a square section of 30*30. The stringing needs to extend diagonally on one face of the leg from a point on one edge to a point on the other edge 200mm further up (leg outlined in black on pic). I was thinking of creating a simple triangular jig from mdf like the one shown in purple on the pic so that I could run a plough plane, router plane, scratch stock etc. up against it to create the channel but wanted some advice on the best tool to use, or if there is another easier way of doing it? The channel needs to be a max of 3.2mm (1/8 inch). I could use a router but would prefer to use a hand tool if possible. Ideas so far are record 43 plough, veritas miniature router plane (comes with a 3.2mm cutter but would need to make a fence for it) or scratch stock. Anyone have any suggestions?
