These planes fill a specific need that I had: to cut the grooves for the bottoms of the small drawers and trays I find myself making far too often. You can read more about them here and in an upcoming issue of Fine Woodworking.

You might be the first person to buy them! Cool. The irons aren't actually short. LN made them to the exact dimensions of the irons I made for my planes, so as long as you make the same planes you'll be fine.
Good luck with the building. Matt
Hi Matt, I called Lie Nielsen to ask if they have any 1/8" irons for ssale as I'd like to make a drawer bottom plane. They said they do as the Honorable Matt Kinney will be writing up a project for an upcoming issue. Great and I bought the pair (that's how they're being sold).
Can you advise if it will be the next upcoming issue?
I wonder why they made the irons so short in length?
Thank you and best regards,
Has anyone out there made a 'bull nose' plane?
Hi there, They look great. I'm thinking of making something similar for a need of mine too.. Cheers
Very nice Matt.
