These are fantastic and I’ve been lurking along while I’m building my 37.5 degree shoulder plane. One of these might be in my future!

No, that’s Matt Kinney, and my planes are based on his. My first post on the subject references the online version of that article. His planes are 1/8” for doing small drawers, while mine were adapted to 1/4” to do standard-sized drawers. Other than that, they are practically identical.
