This is my entry into the 2013 Plane Swap. It is a small smoother made from Walnut and Zebrawood. It is my first and only attempt at making a plane. I was pleasantly surprised when it actually worked. Kind of intimidating having to send this one to Don W. It has an iron from Nice Ash, pretty impressed with the quality and heft of the it. The brass used for the hammer is 3/4” diameter, purchased from Ebay. I think I struggled a bit more with the hammer than the plane. My jig to drill the holes must not have been perfectly centered, cause the head is a bit off.
Had a lot of fun on this swap…again. I look forward to making another plane or two. This is the first time I have actually used a wood plane as well.
Thanks for looking.
