A couple of smoothers in my signature style. The walnut one is 8in long, 50 degree bed angle, the other is a 6in long mini smoother with a honey locust body and 52.5 degree bed. Both use Hock blades, 1-3/4 in the 8in and 1-1/2 in the 6in. As before, all metal is stainless and, with the exception of the screws, milled out by me from bar and round stock. Both work extremely well.

Some more pics of the finished planes and construction process.

Thanks for looking.

Nice JayT!
How many planes have you made now? 2 dozen? Have you learned any new methods or time saving steps?
They look real nice. I may need to order a 50 deg smoother soon.

Thanks, guys.

Paul, I would have to count, but still undrr 20, I think. I learn something on every plane build. Sometimes its a way to save time or fo a process better. Other times I learn a way not to do things.

They are magnificent J’T... I’d love one just to sit back and admire it sitting on my workbench, sipping a glass (of whatever… me sipping), however, the time (with my associated hourly rate) to make myself, I would require to win Tatslotto a few times over.

Yep – those are some sweet looking planes. I keep looking for a project that I can do that would allow me to use that kind of look with the metal rods and rounded over sides. It might have to be a letter box or something because making a plane like this is way beyond my skill level.

There’s times I’m pretty sure it’s beyond mine, too. :-)

Nice work JT! Looking forward to your next build.

Still got that old No.4 I bought from you a few years ago, maybe one day I will have a handcrafted JT original to pair with it!
