Hi Derek,

Looks good.

The only thing I'd change through experience (having school students use shooting boards in place of disc sanders finds a lot of unexpected issues,) is to make the fence tall enough to cover the whole of the plane sole. This way, you can't shave the top of the fence off with the plane and the plane has to stay square to the base.

Cheers,

Andrew
