I was in Denmark this winter for a month. What to do? A visit to Mads is a must. As usual we had a good time and as a parting gift he gave me a plane blade that he had cut out. See pic #2.
I have always wanted to make a plane like this. So this is dedicated to my Lumber Jock friend Mads. I added the pipe to the wedge as a tribute to Mads. He is a pipe smoker. I am not the best of carvers as you can see.

The body is made from Maple with some Walnut accent, to give a little art Deco effect. Wedge is from red oak. Finish is linseed oil.

The plane works well, but needs fine tuning.

Thanks Mads.

That’s a great-looking plane, should be useful.

Mi Madts,
I laugh big time here, but with tears of joy in my eyes.
How could I miss this post!
Such a wonderful plane you made, that iron got the best home possible now. I am really proud to put name to the smoking shoulder plane.
Thank you Madts, I will jump to the blog now.
Best of my thoughts while I smoke on your fathers pipe,
