There are numerous examples of japanese style planes posted here on LJ. A slight variation on the Japanese concept is a plane design commonly referred to as the Krenov style named for the late James Krenov. A quick google search will bring many sources for information on making this style of plane, including examples here on LJ. Also, Woodcraft sells the Hock plane kit which is a Krenov style plane and comes with everything you need to make one with instructions. This would be a great starting place if you have never made a plane before.
