After making the Ash smoother for Ripthorn I wanted to try a higher angle smoother, this one is from Rosewood and is bedded 60 deg.
The last three pics show how it handled some reversing grain in Cherry, it didn't even notice. The iron is from Rhett
Nice Ash planes.

Another great looking plane Tim. Very nice shaving from that reversing grain too.

Great looking plane…. from the looks of the shavings it works as good as it looks.
