Say hello to my little friend

Here’s my new smoother…

It’s a 1930’s Stanley type 16. I pick it up from an online vintage tool dealer. I keep them secret so you don’t get the good stuff before me…sorry.

It was a little rusty and dirty when I got it. I spent a night cleaning it and another night sharpening the blade. I didn’t flatten the sole…I think that’s over-rated.

I love this thing.

Here it is: the first pic is how it arrived; the rest are post clean; the shaving is hard maple
