This is the second design from my alter ego, Lazarus. A beefy mid-sized smoother, she’s 8 1/2” long with a 1 7/8” cutting iron. The plane is made of stainless steel, brass, and wenge. She sports a knife handle tote and a souped up autoset-ish adjustment mechanism. I like this adjuster. Learned of few things on this one…like it’s really, really tedious stone flattening stainless steel. Now just four more to put together.

That is an awesome plane! I have been saving for an expensive infill for a few months now. I would pay top dollar for that one. Keep making them and you might be famous one day? It is very unique. I dig it!
oooooohhh... can I borrow it? I'll give it back. I promise. Do you buy them as a kit, or what? I really want to just reach through the computer screen and handle it.
