Those of us who have been collecting or restoring planes have found that getting good totes and knobs can
be a challenge. As i had quite a few planes around I figured it would be a good idea to make them. It's taken
awhile to get to where I was happy with the designs and finish.
The totes and knobs are based on some prelateral planes and early 1900's. Indonesian rosewood is the
primary wood at this time but Honduran and other rosewoods will be added in the coming months.
When ordering knobs, in the message area please let me know if you have a ring around the knob or not.
custom work is available.The cost of cocobolo is now $60 a board foot so pricing is going up on coco.
Lee Nielsen, Sargent, Union, Miller Falls,Keen Kutter and others can be done also. Please con-
tact me for further info. After using Cocobolo for years it has gotten to expensive to keep using.
It is the best looking rosewood in my opinion.
This is four restored planes with
Honduran Rosewood. Going to
be offering planes soon.
