What else do you call a plane that’s yellow?

Second iteration of a 12 inch panel plane in my signature style. Laminated Osage Orange body with a curly ambrosia maple tote. As with my other planes, the sole, rods and cap are all stainless steel. Several updates/changes to this one. I’ve started using a steel throat block for better iron support and stability, this is the first one completed in that manner. You can see it in this progress pic.

Other changes include insetting the tote, where the first one of this size was laminated clear to the rear and I now have a logo stamp to mark the planes. As with most new techniques & features, there has been a learning curve but it was worth it to develop an even better final product.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks, guys. And Brian, thank you for the recommendation of Infinity Stamps, it came out just like I wanted. Have to continue to practice on how to get the best stamping on a curved surface without doubles.

Looks fantastic, Jay. Is that some of the Norway maple?

Thanks, guys.

No, this is some native Kansas soft maple. The tote was actually made before I got the Norway from you. I didn’t want to use it until I was more sure of some processes and had patters to plan how to get the best yield and figure. I’m most of the way to that point, so you’ll be seeing some in the near future, I’m sure.
