No, I did use a laminated build, as shown in David Finck's book. That's how I
was able to use a Stanley #80 cabinet scraper to flatten the bed.  David Finck
was another of James Krenov's students at College of the Redwoods.

I like them both. A laminated plane can be quite solid and a well-made one can
perform quite well. As Ed pointed out, it's quite hard to see the seams, even in
person.

Cheers,
