I made this plane about two years ago. The plans and instructions were in ShopNotes #79. The 3/16” sides & sole have 3/16” x 3/4” finger joints, which are later soldered together. I blued the brass and then marked out the fingers, cut them on the table saw, using a 7 degree back slope carbide tooth blade. The sides were profiled on the bandsaw. The tote handle & knob are Rosewood, epoxied and set with an 1/4” brass rod. The cap lever is Jatoba. I wasn’t able to find a brass cap lever knob. Maybe one will come my way.
