I made some unusual planes for my 5th year anniversary. these are purpleheart
with a tapered maple inlay. A jointer a jack (set at 47 degrees) a coffin
smoother (the one pictured is 50 but I can make it any angle I normally make)
and a small smoother at 55 degrees. normally the planes would have white oak
totes but I could get matching maple or purpleheart totes too.
the planes are signed dated and numbered on the inside and the outside they are
dated and numbered and have a 5 year anniversary stamp too. I would like to sell
them as a set but I will see what happens. I would give 30.00 off each if a set
or several were bought at once.
they need a couple more coats of finish and the totes and all but you get the
idea. the purpleheart is not showing off yet but it sure will.

I love your planes. A buddy of mine has one of your smoothers. It's
if you still have some around Chrismas time, there's a good chance
SWMBO would order one..... I'm not particualr interested in the "5
year markings" although I congradulate you. I am interested in the
purpleheart/maple combination. If I got one or two for Christmas, I'm
not sure whether I would use them or just put 'em on a shelve and
admire them. Good work.
Until then I'm short on cash! Still need a band saw and a better
router table and then, more hand planes.........
