Hi all,

Have started collecting US made Stanley planes and recently picked up a No5 with an unusual knob. It appears to be two piece laminated but in places it follows small curves here and there.

I can’t imagine anyone painstakingly following small curves to laminate such a perfect join which makes me wonder if it could possibly have come from one piece of wood. It seems improbable as the colors are SO different but the join is so perfect I can’t help wondering. I have rubbed one coat of Danish oil into the wood which was quite heavy and dense.

I can’t find anything like it on the web so hoping someone in the US might have a similar knob in their collection and can tell me if there is a US timber with these characteristics or if US Stanley at some time were manufacturing two piece knobs. Though it’s such a small piece you’d have to wonder why they’d bother!

And finally could it be resin made to look like timber, though again you’d have to wonder why they’d bother. It had a visible grain, particularly evident in the tote and marginally evident in the knob, and absorbed the Danish oil, but nowhere near as rapidly as most woods I have worked with.

Cheers, Ozdude.

Have your say...
