A few months ago when I was at my winter place in Az. I discovered Hock plane blades and made myself a set of three from the native woods of the desert, Mesquite and Osage Orange.

I loved the blades and the planes felt so good in my hands that I wanted to bring them home to Canada but decided instead to just bring home some blades and make a new set here out of native Vancouver Island hardwoods. These are made from Arbutus and Garry Oak.

Of course , I can’t let an opportunity to add marquetry to get by me so I added my cypher, a combination of my initials that I have used since I was a little kid.

Thanks for looking

Thanks for the comments.
Since posting these I have been approached to make a set for another forum member. I agreed and will be making a limited number of sets for sale. I. Don’t want to get commercial here but if anyone is interested please PM me.

Thanks again.

Love those planes Paul.

The logo, cypher I should say, was the first thing that attracted my attention. My thought was “that is a nice logo”.
