Dvoigt, you might want to take a look at the February 2009 issue of "Popular Woodworking" (pages 66-69). They published a story about an 18 year-old that built one of the most beautiful plow planes I've seen. It gave me a whole new appreciation for hand-built tools. As you already know, there are some great examples of hand-built planes (as well as many other hand-built tools) in the "Japan Woodworker Catalog." I don't know much about tool making, but it looks like one of the most rewarding areas of woodworking. Good luck.
