    Krenov Style Apron Planes

    The line up of the next batch of apron planes with 1" Hock blades. Sorry for the poor photos. After this batch is sold I'll invest in a better phone/ camera for taking photos.

    If your interested in reserving one please send me a message for details on how to do so. $135.00 includes priority shipping. They will ship out 1st week of May or so. Sides for this batch are Cocobolo, Bubinga & Rosewood, the bodies are Gaboon Ebony. Hybrid wedge pins for this batch will receive brass rod and the wedges will be Gaboon Ebony.

    The all Gaboon Ebony version is also available as a special order, $140.00.

    The planes in batch two are all spoken for. Batch three will start the second week of May or so if anyone is interested. In the third batch there will be four Rosewood body planes with Ebony sides available. I think these will look great! If your interested in reserving a plane from batch three please send me a note. Thank you to those of you that have ordered planes! It's great to be back in Timberwerks Studio making things again! I can only be there nights and weekends for now and I sure look forward to that time.

    Six of eight out of the clamps and trimmed of excess before shaping. The Cocobolo on Ebony looks great already, can't wait to see those colors when finish is applied!

    Well, due to overtime at work and being under the weather I didn't make as much progress as I wanted to this week however the planes bodies are now shaped and sanded. I really like the look of the two species planes!

    This morning I have a bit of time to work on the hybrid pins before we get ready and go for a mother's day get together. So, what's your opinion on pin rod choice, aluminum or brass? I do like the contemporary look of the aluminum pin on the all Ebony planes but the brass is a much nicer material. Brass will be used with the Cocobolo, Rosewood and Curly Maple sided planes but now I'm thinking brass on the all Ebony is probably more fitting.

    Either way I'll probably go with the brass on all planes from now on because it ties together the overall high quality and looks.

    Thoughts?

    Dale,
    I think either will be great. I personally think the brass will look better on all of the planes. Jack

    Thanks Jack! Happy to say that all planes in this batch have brass rods for the hybrid wedge pin. I'll be using the brass on all future planes as well.

    A little bit of an update. I used brass rod on all the planes and I'm very pleased with how they look. The Ebony wedges are rough cut and now it's time to enter the fit & finish stage.

    I'm taking orders for batch 3 if anyone is interested. This batch will begin Memorial day weekend and ship at the end of June or so.

    Hi Dale,

    Nice work! I’m glad you’re enjoying plane making on a small-batch production scale.

    I’ve been following along on the various forums and I’m ready to order one. What’s the plane pictured in the middle? I’d like to have one just like that but with a Hard Maple wedge if possible please. I can come back and delete this comment once you’ve identified the wood species I’m talking about. Thanks.

    Justin

    Hi Justin

    The one in the center has East Indian Rosewood sides with the Gaboon Ebony body. Sure, I can make one for you with a Curly Maple wedge.

    One last update until next weekend when I'll have photos of the finished planes. Now the focus is on prepping the Hock blades, fit the wedges and apply the finish. This batch will start shipping next weekend. Batch three, a total of six will start Memorial Day Weekend. Two of the six are already reserved.


    Thanks again guys!

    A none photo update for today.

    As of today only 18 more of these Gaboon Ebony apron planes will be built. Reason being that is all the Ebony cutoff stock I have on hand. If I had to order more wood I just couldn't make and sell these at such a fair price with the Hock blades. If your interested in one of these 18 please send me a note. All Ebony or Ebony body with Bubinga, Cocobolo, Rosewood or Curly Maple sides are options for the last 18.

    Thanks!

    I'm spending Sunday afternoon in the studio with some Hock blades and the Tormek T-8. A perfect day for sharpening, nice breeze coming through the windows and listening to good music.
