What I expected to see based on the project title and what I saw were very different. Nice plane.

When I first saw the title I thought I was going to see a woodworking tool (same as shampeon above).

But when I saw your name as the LJ who was posting it, I pretty much figured it was going to be this. Nice job, pretty cool plane !
