I built two planes yesterday, a jointer and a smoother. Let's say that they are a little different from the usual fare.

Firstly the jointer (in Jarrah) ...





And, secondly, the smoother (in She-oak) ...





Both are razee designs, of which I am fond. Blades are A2. Lever cap knobs are from Lee Valley.

The obligatory smoother shavings ..



Views of the planes, together ..





Oh yes, if you did not get it immediately, they are built around the inset planes from Lee Valley. They are even tinier than I realised. That's a 12" rule alongside the planes ...

Ok, I'm now off to see what I can invent around them. Ideas folks?

Regards from Perth

Derek

Very interesting Derek...and beautiful work again...JARRAH!!! OOOOOOH! :mrgreen:

C$40 is a bit steep but it does simplify the difficult bit of making planes and I trust it is a hell of a lot more accurate and stable than trying to get the bed right...along with a screw and iron it is...I suppose quite good value.

I wonder if they plan to make bigger ones? Interested if they do...and 01 steel irons as well... :wink:

That catalogue is one dangerous piece of literature!!! :oops:

Cheers

Jim
