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.
