I’ve made a few infill again. This is one of my latest.

Partial Infill Smoother
◾Walnut finished with hand rubbed brush oil
◾2” Hock iron
◾1/2” steel sole
◾Bedded at 50 degrees
◾Approx. 9” long

This is a design I’ve had in mind for a while.

I have many more pictures on my web site. I’ll fill in the commentary as I have time. Godaddy’s website builder has been giving me heartburn.

My plan is to sell this, make another, and so one. We’ll see how it goes.

Don, that sucks. You need to build another one, even better.
Now send me that pos, so you don’t have to look at it any longer.

Another winner, Don!
That tote looks great, and the sexy shape of the sides must have been quite a workout!

Don, how is that front bun in the hand? I’ve been thinking about front bun design a little. I plan to do a full size smoother at some point. I’m recently really liking Konrad Sauer’s K series of planes, very sleek. I am thinking I need to do a K9 in brass.

An infill with the square bun is held different. I thought about rounding it more, but I like the traditional look. I may try something more like the Sauer redesign at some point.

Thanks Joe!!

Now that is some nice work but your pricing seems way too low .
One question I have is how do you deal with wood movement on these beautiful planes ?

Hey Don,

I love your infill planes, You have inspired me to give it a try. I have a few parts planes that I could tap in to. Have you ever considered trying a low-angle configuration? I’m tempted to try with a 5 or a 6 but I’m not sure how well the iron would stay in place at the lower angle with a hold-down mechanism similar to yours. Have you attempted anything similar? What are your thoughts?

Look through the forum topics of http://lumberjocks.com/luthierwnc

I know there is 2 forums in there that will interest you.

I’d like to do a low angle one of these days to. I just don’t have time.
