I been wanting to make one of these for sometime now. So with some down time today i made one out of oak. I went to 4 hardware stores trying to find a new plane blade...HA Good luck. So i took one from a small plane and wire wheeled it for this cutter. This is a working protoype cutter Used brass deck screw to assemble, no glue. All the other hardware is SS. Got it finished and inside where i will take it apart and use some butcher block oil on it. Got 2 coats of oil on it, rubbed the blade down with lard and re assembled it. Tomorrow i will get some SS wing nuts. Sorry i didnt write anything down, just built as i went. Gotta try it on the LJ when its done.
