Hollowing plane ()

Years ago I ran across a plane that someone had modified. It was an old rebate plane. They used screws to put on a wood bottom (sole). They shaped the new bottom to a round. They cut a slot for the blade and fabricated a blade for it. I tried it and the plane did a fair job, could be improved. You could do something similar and have several soles with different profiles. Just a thought.
