Why yes...

that is a

Lie-Nielson

#4 Smooth Plane on my workbench.  And I am happy to see it.  My dad and I took a 3.5 hour (one way) road trip to

Highland Hardware

 today to see the

Wood Whisperer

 and meet other

guildies

. We were both blown away by how many tools Highland has on hand.  Not only that, they were all knowledgeable and very helpful. I wish I had this to clean up the stock for the shaker table. Well, now I do have it, and can't wait to put it to use.
