Horned smoothing plane made of cherry. Dimensions are 8.5” long x 3” wide x 2.25” high. From the sole to the top of the horn is about 5”.

I blogged about the build if you’re interested. Go to http://villagecarpenter.blogspot.com. You can scroll down the entries from today’s date (Feb 13, 2013). They are almost all in order. I tried doing a search for Horned Smoother, but nothing came up for some weird reason.

Beautiful! I really like the Scandinavian design…..looks like a Viking long boat, and the chip carving is a special detail. It’s so cool, I don’t even care if it works. Bravo!

That’s very nice. Do you plan to use it, or is it a show piece?

Thanks guys! Yes, my plane (named Sven) will be put to use. Hopefully, he’ll last several generations before being put out to sea.

Hi Kari. Very beautiful plane. It’s your new apprentice, I see. I always love your projects and I wish you would post more of your work here. It seems from a quick scan of your project page that I missed most of the ones you did post. All first class work and with a nice Norwegian feel to them as well.

it makes me want to go out and carve something. I’d love to see a blog on how you do it.

Very very nice.

Im astounded. Thats an awesome plane. The lucky person who finds that plane 100 years from now will hopefully cherish it as much as you do. Truly an heirloom tool.

I can’t get over how well balanced all the decoration is and how ingeniously all the facets transition across the body. Crisply executed as well. Love it.

Kari that is excellent, every detail and there are a lot of details.
in each facet the light just catches showing it to it’s best
It looks as if it has age, in a nice way
