Stunning High Angle Smoothing Plane.

A while back Kim contacted me hoping to add a high angle smoother to his collection. Sadly I had stopped making them at this stage, so he decided to make his own and a fine job he has made.

The body is very rare black and white ebony with a Gabon ebony sole, African blackwood wedge and beautifully turned brass cross pin. The blade is by Ron Hock.

Kim followed plans from an article I wrote in Furniture and Cabinet Making Magazine which is still available if you email the editor Derek Jones

The build quality and fit and finish are every bit as good as anything I ever made and I'm sure it performs very well. To round it off he made an adjustment hammer from kingwood African blackwood and brass, very nice!
