New Ready To Ship Planes

Osage Orange and Asian Ebony Smoother

22 Inch Mesquite and Blackwood Jointer

I’ve just added these two new planes to the Ready To Ship page. The first is a 22″ Mesquite and African Blackwood Jointer. I love these Mesquite Jointers, but finding decent material for them is so tough. I wish I could make it a regular option. The stability and weight make this one incredible plane. The price is $1545.
The second plane available now is the Osage Orange and Asian Ebony Smoother, at a price of $600. The Osage has some beautiful grain that changes color nicely depending on how the light hits it. It will darken up with age, just giving it more character as it does so. The bed angle is 50°.
You can add either of these planes to your shop by going to the Ready To Ship page.

My friends at Sterling Tool Works recently announced their amazing new plane hammer. I was one of the lucky few who received an early prototype, which I’ve been using in my shop since. I love this hammer so much, that after only a week of using it, I talked to Chris about making some exclusively for […]
