I use this one as a smoother for some woods. It is short-ish for a smoother at 8 1/2”, but does its job quite well.
Has a nice weight to it in use – not too light and not too heavy. Feels very solid.
Made from wenge, with beech stripes and an ipe sole.
Finish is tung oil and wax
The bed is 50 degrees and the iron is another of the LV wooden plane irons. I cut it down with a Dremel and about 10 of those tiny cutting wheels.
