    Keep in mind that it is not difficult to grind the blades for the Small to whatever size you want (as long as these are smaller that the existing 1/4" blade).

    My bad Joe. I misunderstood.

    Our own Derek Cohen is too classy to mention this, but he did an excellent write up on making wooden router planes.
    If I didn't buy a beautiful (and cheap) mahogany router plane, I'd have gone down that route (I even got the wood and hardware parts for it, but no time or energy!).
    I honestly like his design better than the LV large router plane that I have sitting unused in my bedroom.

    His write up is here. http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMad...39;sTooth.html

    Cheers mate!

    Thanks for the kind words Matt. Since you have outed me, I must point out that router you linked to was an early design - still OK, but it has been superseded by the design in the link below. A little more to do, but a whole lot better router plane. This one is built around the LV blades and the article includes a template ...

    Derek, even your simplest tools are beautiful. I wish I had (or could learn) your sense of design, Sir.
