« Part 5: A Pair of Pocket Planes Part 6 of Wooden Planes series Part 7: Laminated Block »

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.

Beautifully done, Mark. This one really shows the shape and wood combinations I have grown accustomed to seeing from you.

Those colors, so chocolatey. Not sure if I want to make shavings with it, or take a bite.
