Hi Ralph, nice planes....
You are so right about how one skill can promote another. Since I dont yet have a metal shop set up I am planning an archtop bass ukulele build. One indispensable tool used for shaping the top and bottom plates of arched top instruments are arched sole "finger" planes.
I made a couple with wood bodies but traditionally they are brass.
