Rosewood Fillister and Mini-Panel Raiser




Hi Folks
Thought you might like a look at the latest pair of planes I've completed. The customer wanted something a little special for the timber and chose Rosewood - so please say hello to the Rosewood Moving Fillister and Mini Panel Raiser!
There was a lot more work involved in the finishing of the Rosewood compared to Beech, but it was well worth it as they look a million dollars (they didn't cost that though, you'll be pleased to know!)
If you would like a custom plane just drop me an email or check out my website at www.phillyplanes.co.uk for more details.
Cheers
Philly

Phil,
these look great! The rosewood and bronze work so well together-
A small panel raising plane is on my list...gotta sell a few more books first!
keep well-
Tom

Phil,

What do you used for the moving mechanism. A few of the vintage fillisters I have move on brass screws and I constantly have problems keeping the fence stable and the screws get looser every day. Curious to see if you have any innovations to the idea.

Thanks Tom!

Shannon - I fit metal inserts into the stock. These take the machine screws which hold the fence - I've had no issues with this system so far!

Best regards
Philly
