I thought I would post some photos of my just completed Brese 650 Smoother. I usually don’t go in for excess with my tools and fixtures. I’m the guy with mis-matched doors on mdf shop cabinets. When I saw the great work done by Ron Brese I wanted to try and do it justice.
The infill is ebony. The plane is inlaid with abalone, white, pink, and gold mother of pearl, and brass.
I included some photos of the build, and am happy to expand on the process or answer questions if desired.
And the best part, some .001 shavings from gnarly cherry. The plane cut perfectly regardless of grain direction.
Thanks for the great work Ron, I’m already saving for another one of your planes.
