Just in time!
I am just finishing up three special XSNo.4 smoothers. Here are the details - in no particular order.
First - a Figured Rosewood filled XSNo.4ss smoother. This is the first plane in a series from this piece of wood and the other planes should be equally spectacular.
The grain in the rear infill is just insane! When I was roughing these planes out, I had no idea they would be this killer.
The next XS is infilled with some birds eye/curly English boxwood (oh to be so lucky!). This came from a piece of boxwood I picked up in England several years ago. Like the Brazilian above, the figure exceeded my earlier notions.
And last, but certainly not least is one of the last Mystery Rosewood planes. This is also one in a series and I am very pleased about the homes these last few Mystery Rosewood planes are going to.
The 28-1/2" A2 jointer is coming along nicely - I should be posting some photos in a day or two.
