A few recent planes


Two English Boxwood filled XSNo.4’s.



A Rosewood filled XSNo.4.




Here is a shot of the inside of the front bun.



And a close up of the front of the bun. There is some pretty amazing grain and color going on in this one - and its big brother below.



Here is a Rosewood filled A5. This plane has a 50 degree bed angle and a 2-1/4" wide blade.


The front bun on this plane is stunning - here is an inside view.

There are two more planes close behind these two - ebony and steel - one of which is an exciting variation - stay tuned.

Really nice, Konrad. Will you be at Westonbirt this year so that we can play with your lovely planes?

Cheers ;-)

I have to comment. Those two boxwood planes are just gorgeous. If there's any tool that would motivate someone to do refined work, it would have to be one of these little fellows.

Thanks Paul. I am not sure if Westonbirt is in the cards or not - we have a bit of a scheduling issue that we are trying to sort out.

Cheers,
Konrad
