Two planes made for the 2013 plane swap.

First one is a 45 degree smoother. body is chestnut and sides are bloodwood.
Second is a scraper. Body is birch and sides are cherry.

Irons are vintage, however the chip breaker for the smoother is shop made.

Outstanding! Particularly impressive are the “proof” shavings for each plane that verify how well each plane works. Congratulations on two jobs well done.

Both beauties Don! Can the second one be used with the blade on either side of the pin? Thanks for running this show Don. You did a great job!
