Great idea to mount with the thumbscrew, solving a problem brilliantly simple.
Really fine granny, nice curves I like your design.
Nothing better tan selfmade tools, and here beautiful also.

On this picture a old traditionally Danish one I have.
There is a rabbet behind the blade to stabilize it perhaps this could inspire.
Also the top is rounded so it’s nice to hold when using it.

Best thoughts,

Nice. Clever holder.

I have a blade and have been waiting to get around to making one.
Thanks for the inspiration.

I’ve been trying to think of a good way to make a router plane out of wood, and this looks like just the ticket. Thanks.

Many thanks for the kind and encouraging remarks. It indeed is a great tool and being made of wood, it’s very light weighted. Great for making controlled light cuts or shaving.
