Here is a Coffin style smoother made with the Veritas plane kit. The wood is Beech from a donor plane and a bloodwood lever cap. Also added set screws on the sides to prevent lateral movement of the iron. Tested it out on some Cherry and Walnut, it works great with or against the grain.

That looks great. What is the bed angle?

Very nice plane Tim. What are your thoughts on the Veritas kit?

Tim, just what I expected to hear. Everything I’ve purchased from them has been top notch.

Kiefer- I also purchased a couple of plane kits W/O the blade, they were very reasonably priced if you have an extra Veritas plane iron.
