Here’s my offering for the 2013 plane swap…

An 8” long smoother made from Honduras Rosewood and Ziricote. 1 3/4” Hock iron and ‘breaker bedded at 45 degrees. Cross pin is stainless steel housed in Ziricote.

This was only my 2nd plane ever, so the results are OK, but I’m ready for more practice since this was such a fun build. :)

A big THANKS to DonW for organizing the swap!

Beautiful job, Terry. The grain in that shot from the rear is spectacular.

Looking good Terry! That little dip in front looks like it makes it very comfortable to use. Great shavings! Now go make another to keep!

Well done, my friend! That subtle curve near the front looks like a good place for the heel of the hand to push down on the toe of the plane. I like that shaping.

This will be my third attempt to post on this project. I’m not sure what that is about.

Nice job Terry. I really like the woods you used.
