What's a thicknesser for?

The answer to the question is - obviously - "it's for making a mess in the garden". I took this pic about half way through preparing the body from that piece of cherry (you can see a the edge piece with the bark still on it, propped up against the open door). It leaves a really smooth finish, nice and even, and saves a huge amount of time with the hand plane and sandpaper!
