The mechanism is based on a combination of Derek Cohen’s and Stumpy Nub’s, so that should be pretty clear if you look up how those are constructed. I wanted to keep the body on the larger and rectangular side of things, since I plan to use this to plane down tenon cheeks, and a wide/long body will help stabilize the cut there. It’s 8”x4”. Blade is purchased from Veritas (1/2”), and the rest of the hardware can be found at the hardware store.

cuts great… quality of cut is basically determined by the side-to-side alignment of the blade, and how sharp it is, so it’s not hard to get it right. I try to use as standard hardware as i can get – I’m into it for the woodworking, not the metalworking :)

I really like it. I bought the Veritas version and like it a lot although I am considering doing a bottom plate to register a wider area. Continuously advancing the depth to reach goal looks like it might be a bit uncomfortable. Do you advance by hand or need a tool?

advancement is by hand and not at all uncomfortable – it’s 20 tpi screw, and in reality, you rarely have that cutter much past 3/4”, and usually much less.
