    Even though I have a Tormek T8 I'm going to give the Scary Sharp System a try. All the blades in the photo have already been flattened & sharpened on the T8 so it will be interesting to see if Scary Sharp will produce even a better edge.

    The new honing guide arrived. It's really a very nice guide for the money. It's machined well and holds the blades perfectly square and tight. My Veritas guide is also nice but setting the blade square can be a bit of a pain. This is the reason for the new guide.

    Hi Guys


    Just a quick update on shipping out batch 2. I'm still running a bit behind due to my schedule at work. Once this week is over I'll be able to get back on track since I'll have more time to spend in my studio. Speaking of work, I found a couple cut offs that are actually Maple skateboard laminations. I'm thinking these may make some interesting looking planes, Ebony bodies with the laminated sides. Once I get back on schedule I think I'll make 4 of them and see if there is any interest in these.


    Thanks for your patience with batch 2.

    A quick update on batch two of the apron planes. Today was the first day I had a chance to spend time in the studio for awhile and I made some progress. The blades are all sharpened, wedges are shaped & fitted and I'm currently in the process of opening up the mouths to accept small shavings.

    The side by side photo of the blade shows before sharping on left, after on right.

    Well, I finally made it to the finish line with batch two. Now to wait a few days for finish to cure before final buffing and they'll be ready to ship out Saturday. This batch turned out great and really look fantastic! It's tough to tell from the photos but there is a plane in the group that has the Ebony body & Rosewood sides. This one has such a nice look to it in person.

    Batch three will start soon. Two of the planes from this batch are reserved and the others will be put up for sale once they are done.

    Where did you get the new honing guide? Looks like a really well made Eclipse style guide.

    It's made by Sharp Pebble, very nice quality. I purchased from Amazon $35.00. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09BPSRHWP...roduct_details

    Today is the day the planes get their blade & wedge back in place and take a shaving before being boxed up. Rather than do a group shot I'll post an individual photo of the plane and the name of the person it goes to. It may take a couple days to get through all.

    First one up is for Ed S. Ed's plane has a Gaboon Ebony body, wedge pin and wedge with Curly Maple sides.

    Thanks for you patience Ed!
