Brian Holcombe wrote a post on the lengths he will go to to kick my butt in the planing competition at the NYC Kez this weekend.

In all seriousness, this is a terrific writeup on how to make the body for a Japanese plane.

And again, if you haven’t signed up for the NYC Kez, there’s still time to do so. Hope to see you there.
