I made this smoothing plane for the plane swap. The iron is bedded at 50° w/ a fantastic Nice Ash iron, thanks Rhett. I used white oak for the body and Morado for the sole, the wedge is lacewood. I also made the adjusting hammer to go with it. This is clearly a Krenov style plane all the way. My first plane ever. It was quite a learning experience and thanks to Don for hosting the swap.

One side of the hammer has a purpleheart plug for tapping the wedge.

Well done. The oak looks nice. Pretty slick soft side of the mallet.

Nice job, Bondo! I really like how the oak came out, and your mallet is a special touch.
