    Wanted: Wooden Planes: Smother and Fore

    I am beginning the Mortise and Tenon Apprentice Workshop in a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to developing my hand tool skills and hooking up with other like minded woodworkers. Joshua recommends wood planes so I am looking to get a couple to see what the woodies are all about.
    What I need are a smoother and a fore/jack plane. Planes that need some simple tuneup are fine with me. I'd like to avoid major restoration that is probably beyond my skill set and the high end stuff is too pricey given this newbe test run. Let me know what you are looking to pass on and what it would cost to get it shipped to my workshop in Philadelphia, PA 19129 Pictures would help make this happen quickly.

    Would a wooden coffin plane satisfy the smoother requirement?

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    Mike,
    This is all new territory for me.
    I am thinking a coffin smoother would be fine.
    Thanks for asking,
    Ron

    I might be able to help with the jack plane -- sent you a PM.

    Thanks,

    Rick
