Very enjoyable project, one of those that I'll be reminded of every time I grab this plane! If you are now inspired to possibly make your own plane, Ron Hock sells complete kits on his website that include everything you need, even the wood. I have a link to his website on my blog. They are of the classic James Krenov design and don't have the tote and handle I've added to mine. If you want to make a scrub plane from the kit he'll substitute the straight blade for a radiused one like I used.
