Brian Shugarue contacted me recently to introduce his lovely planes. He is a cabinetmaker and planemaker living in Melbourne Australia.
This is his latest plane, a 'low slung' smoother in Damascus steel.
The style of these planes is similar to the ones I make from wood and they look very comfortable, a nice rounded back and an upward sweeping front bun which gives a great finger and thumb hold.
I couldn't resist slipping this picture in of his very fine looking toolbox.
Here's one of his earlier planes a cute, more traditional squirrel tail block plane.
If you want to see more of Brian's work check out his website http://www.bjsplanesandwoodworking.com/p/main.html
