This is my interpretation of a Norris No. 6 smoothing plane. I built it with a steel sole and brass sides. The infill is Honduran rosewood. The iron is a 2-1/4” x 5/32” A2 Hock iron bedded at 50 degrees. I demonstrated this plane at Woodworking in America on a piece of birdseye maple. It sliced right through those birdseyes and left a glassy smooth finish on the wood. Contact me if you are interested in ordering one for yourself.

Wow, what a beautiful tool. What sort of money would you be asking for one? (please pm me if you would rather let me know that way)

Outstanding craftmanship. I would love to slide it over a piece of fine wood. The handle looks so comfortable.

What a beauty.
Outstanding work.
I really would love to try and make some shaves.
I am the lucky owner of both Norris and Spiers planes, and find these planes outdo all my others.

Thanks to all for the kind words.

Mads, I am envious that you have original infills! I couldn’t find one in the wild so I had to start building them myself!

Dear Tony, I feel really lucky one of them was a gift from a dear friend in Scotland.
But I think you have every reason to be a happy man, I sure would if I was you,
