Yeah, I know It’s not made of wood. If you’re reading this, consider yourself lucky that you found it before the mods remove it. :-)

Materials: Hardened & dyed petroleum product.
Finish: None
Hours in the “shop” (living room floor): 1/2 hour

It may not last, since part of the “wedge” was taken off of a race car.

Well, the “Iron” protrudes through a small opening on the underside of the plane at an angle, so that if you were to use lots of force, you could probably scrape some small amount of dust off of a soft wood (balsa, maybe poplar)...thereby smoothing the surface. :-)

So where are the pickies of something you have made with it?
The timber has a “lego” look about it!

Rob, unfortunately, it only lasted one night…I didn’t use “the kragl”...so it is gone now, never got to actually use it!

Here’s a detail shot of the now-deconstructed Smoothing plane’s mouth opening…and my next project…the Bit & Brace!

I’m visualizing a photo montage of a whole shop full of these sort o’ tools along with a full sized Chippendale Highboy (made of Legos, of course), that was supposedly fashioned with these tools.

Perhaps in the future when I dig my childhood lego stash out of the closet in my dad’s house…for the time being I am limited to the small set that I (my son) just got for myself (his birthday).
