Default CS2 smoother from Raney

Guys & Gals,

Today I received a beautiful little smoother from Raney Nelson. He did a great job on this plane and he is very clearly now one of the top plane makers in the world. The CS2 is a 50 degree bevel down plane. The blade is O1 and an 1 3/4" wide. The sides and the lever cap are bronze and the wood is Brazilian Rosewood. I just used it on some Tasmanian Myrtle and it cut wonderfully. I have taken some pictures and I hope that you like them.

Fred

dovetailing with steel and brass is just a beautiful combination!

Why are there no shavings in the background?

Because the plane won't open it's mouth.

Seriously that is a beautiful plane that looks pretty comfortable to use too.

Ha! Same thing I saw, Michael... given the space behind the blade, almost wonder if it is supposed to be bevel up?!

Wow! That's a beautiful little smoother, Fred. I love the proportion of rosewood to brass - more wood, less metal along the sides. The dovetails are small and have very crisp edges and corners. Very fine workmanship. And that mouth - I'm surprised photons can get through there!

That would make it about an 80 degree pitch

Okami, as far as I recall, Raney French Polishes the infills.
