The Dunlap Plane Truth

I just finished up some kick panels for under a cabinet in de kitchen.  I had some 1x4 pine boards I was using, and they were a few millimeters too tall, so I was wondering what to do. 

Then it hit me:  I had this vintage Dunlap plane in the tool chest. I could just shave off some of the top.

Worked like a charm.  I had previously cleaned it up and sharpened the blade.  Pine was no problem at all.  Not the world's best plane, but I like it, and I got it for $1 at a yard sale.  And it's old.
