Project Information

I made this smoothing plane for the plane swap. The iron is bedded at 50° w/ a fantastic Nice Ash iron, thanks Rhett. I used white oak for the body and Morado for the sole, the wedge is lacewood. I also made the adjusting hammer to go with it. This is clearly a Krenov style plane all the way. My first plane ever. It was quite a learning experience and thanks to Don for hosting the swap.

One side of the hammer has a purpleheart plug for tapping the wedge.

Well done. The oak looks nice. Pretty slick soft side of the mallet.

Hey, I recognize that plane and hammer! They look exactly like the ones came to my house on in a custom Box. I love them, thanks for sending them to me.

Nice Bondo! The countersink for the wedge pin is a really nice touch! Morado is another wood I've not heard of…African?

I love the subtle beauty of a white oak plane, and the contrasting sole is also a very nice touch.

Morado's other name is Bolivian rosewood, I assume it is South American.
