Update: The replacement motor was delayed and now set to arrive Wednesday. This time I received notice with a tracking number so things are looking better. The delay has allowed me to come to the decision to make more planes. Batch III however will still be the last batch of Ebony bodied planes seeing I only have enough Ebony body blanks on hand for 2 more in addition to the ones already reserved. If you would like to reserve one these two please send me a note. With the cost of Ebony being so high it isn't practical for me to order Ebony for future planes. The planes that have been made and in the process of being made are from Ebony I have had on hand for years so using it was not a cost issue really.

I do have a number of East Indian Rosewood body blanks I will use moving forward. I do have plenty of Ebony stock for sides if anyone is interested in a Rosewood / Ebony combo.

That's all for now,

The new bandsaw motor is in and this weekend I'll be back to the bench making planes. I do still have two Ebony body blanks on hand if anyone is interested in reserving one in this last batch of Ebony bodied planes. Along with this Ebony bodied batch I will make a couple Rosewood bodied planes as well. These will most likely have Curly Maple sides with a Rosewood hybrid pin and wedge. Watch for photos in the weekends ahead.
