: If you are going to build your own planes, you may want to check
: out James Krenov's approach. I can't remember if it is detailed
: in "The Fine Art of Cabinetmaking" or " A cabinet
: Maker's Notebook". He has great instructions on how to
: build a very usable and comfortable tool. I have used his

: projects.

There is an article on Krenov planes in Fine Woodworking back issues. If you go to their web site and sign up for a free trial you can look it up. The blade will be the hard part, not the plane body.
