As you can see from the pics I have been pretty busy lately. A few of these saws went to LJ’s and a few are for me ;) From first to last the handles are sapele, bubinga, padauk, and sapele again. I’ve been working hard to develop my handle templates and improve my quality and speed of manufacturing. Once summer hits I will be able to work on saws almost full time.

I also threw together this little krenov style coffin smoother. I love the shape and design of the old planes but wasn’t about to make or buy a set of floats. Krenov style is quick and easy to build so I got the best of both worlds. Its my go to smoother now, wood on wood has such a different feel from a metal plane. I would like to upgrade the iron to close up the mouth a bit though. Woodriver no.3 replacement blades at 15$ each sound pretty good to me…

I don’t want this post to turn into an advertisement, but what do you guys think of this for a potential logo?

Thanks for looking and any input on either the saw design or the logo is much appreciated!

I like the logo – cut off green bay and give it to Michigan…

Wally, nice work as usual. A picky point, is the saw backwards?

Thanks as always for the comments everyone!
@Kevin, I would have to shrink the wisconsin shape quite a bit to get the saw to fit if it faced the presentation side. Not to mention that I saw lefty too ;)
