Wonderful Little Dovetailed Smoother

Nigel sent me these pictures of a lovely little plane he made. It features cupids bow dovetails on both the sides and sole and has a super tight mouth. It has a nice quarter sawn cocobolo infill for stability as well as looks and a nice thick blade bedded at 59 degrees. The quality of the details is superb which is no surprise as he is a professional violin maker. You can see some of his work here.
