New header! I figured it was time – and since it’s spring now, it might as well have some color (rather than the usual black and white). I’ll switch back to monochromatic when winter comes round again.
Also, another plane is almost complete. This one is also Cocobolo – however the wedge is Madagascar Rosewood, which is much harder than the Cocobolo. My hope is that it will wear better, I was concerned about how the Cocobolo would hold up over time.
In the future however I’m hoping that these planes will be entirely made from a harder wood – in particular I’m hoping I can make them with Ebony or Ziricote, but I’ll have to see what’s available to me (and what’s affordable).
