What else do you call a plane that's yellow?Second iteration of a 12 inch panel plane in my signature style. Laminated Osage Orange body with a curly ambrosia maple tote. As with my other planes, the sole, rods and cap are all stainless steel. Several updates/changes to this one. I've started using a steel throat block for better iron support and stability, this is the first one completed in that manner. You can see it in this progress pic.Other changes include insetting the tote, where the first one of this size was laminated clear to the rear and I now have a logo stamp to mark the planes. As with most new techniques & features, there has been a learning curve but it was worth it to develop an even better final product.Thanks for looking.
Wow. If you haven't made an end grain cutting board like this, you might want to store up some patience first. It was fun and challenging at the same time. The 3-5m pieces are slick and try to move, when doing the glue up. I finished with mineral oil. Enjoy
I used my Cnc router to whip up some MDF cabinet doors. I then used Rocklers hinge cup Jig to drill the holes for the European Hinges. These are for a custom cabinet set for two bathrooms.
