I know it looks like this and the last one are back to back, but its just the posting. I really didn’t make this starting yesterday.

This is a #3 size. Donor sole is a defiance #3.
Wood is epoxied into the sole with the rear piece pinned as well.
Wood is wenge. Accent on front is Ash.
Bedded at 55 degrees.
Hock iron.
I made the chip breaker.
Finish is 1-1-1
Cap is brass.
And plenty more pictures on my blog

Thanks for looking.

You’re getting in the class with Brease, ya know! Super fine workmanship, and just look at those micro-thin gosmer shavings. I’ll bet you could even cut my hard Pecan without it dancing and vibrating over the grain?

Wow, this one is sweet. I like the looks of the blade, breaker, and cap. Is the brass on the knob purely decorative?

So what is next?

Don, how long is the waiting list for a DW infill smoother? Or an infill block?

Shane, the brass on the knob is a strike button.

Smitty, it all depends on the size of the bribe.
