I bought a shoulder plane kit and started the build.

Now I am working on the infill material. I can’t decide between ebony or the cocobolo stock that came with the kit. It has been pretty straightforward so far. Nice instruction manual. I really hate they went out of business.

Sorry about that. It was Legacy Planes. I got the kit as they were liquidating their stock.

I have been considering starting my own company to build kits but I get discouraged every time I hear something like this. There was another company, Shetland I think, go out of business a few years ago. Why do you think this happens?

Why? Too much supply and not enough demand?
