Had made the rear handle for a prior project only to get the geometry all wrong, so just had a handle laying about doing nothing, so decided to make a bevel up smoothing plane. Also wanted to see what all the ‘fuss’ is about with these bevel up planes.
Overall dimensions are 48mm X 230mm, made from brass with a blackwood rear handle and a front knob made from Jarrah, finished in Danish oil with a wax finish and burnished with steel wool.
Amazingly, it required no tuning up, was able to take fine shavings on the first go!
