Moulding planes are also on my someday list – it’s insane that Don found the ones he did, but it’s like the lottery, I guess: Gotta be out there ‘playing’ to win. Never know when they’re going to pop up.

A complete #45 is a good gateway tool for cutting some basic profiles, and also serves as a fine plough and rabbeting plane. If you get a chance, study up on that combination plane before buying (so you know what to look for re: ‘complete’) and jump in. Good luck!
