Norris Style No. 6 Smoothing Plane

Ravens Edge Number 6 Smoother

This is my interpretation of a Norris No. 6 smoothing plane.  I built it with a steel sole and brass sides.  The infill is Honduran rosewood.  The iron is a 2-1/4″ x 5/32″ A2 Hock iron bedded at 50 degrees.  I demonstrated this plane at Woodworking in America on a piece of birdseye maple.  It sliced right through those birdseyes and left a glassy smooth finish on the wood.  Contact me if you are interested in ordering one for yourself.
