About The Stanely Bailey No4 Smoothing Hand plane. Hand-drawn by Marcus
A smoothing plane is a type of woodworking tool used for smoothing and shaping wooden surfaces. It has a long, flat blade made of high-quality steel that is sharpened to a fine edge. The blade is mounted in a wooden body and is adjustable, so the user can control the depth of the cut.
The smoothing plane is used to remove saw marks and other imperfections from the surface of a piece of wood. It is also used to create a smooth, even surface in preparation for staining, finishing, or painting.
To use a smoothing plane, the user runs the blade over the surface of the wood, taking light, even strokes. The sharp blade cuts away the high spots and leaves a smooth surface behind. The user can adjust the depth of the cut to control the amount of material removed.
Smoothing planes come in different sizes and designs, with some having curved or bevelled blades for working in tight spaces or on curved surfaces. The quality of the blade and the accuracy of the adjustment mechanism are important factors to consider when choosing a smoothing plane.
