After digesting the many favourable comments on my last post of plane builds for my Canadian shop and with the encouragement of some of you on the forum I decided to take the plunge and build a few sets for sale. Each set will include one each of the three shown. The blades are from Ron Hock at Hock Tools and the woods in the current batch are my local Vancouver Island Arbutus (Madrone) and Garry Oak along with accents in Queen Ebony (Tubi).
One set is already sold and one set has been sent off to a friend for a “second opinion” confirmation that I’m on the right track. I like them a lot myself but it’s hard to be objective about your own work.
If things work out I’ll offer options of owner’s initials on the opposite side from the maker’s mark and a custom (marquetry) box to keep them in.
