New Quangsheng Plane Handles

The first of the new American cherry handled Quangsheng planes have arrived. So far we have No.5’s and bronze spokeshaves in cherry wood, but it will shortly be introduced across the full range, replacing the bubinga handles completely. 

The marking gauges are in walnut at the moment, whether this will eventually change to cherry too I’m not sure, but different timbers might be a nice way to tell them apart if you are using more than one on a project.

In any case, if you’d prefer one of the bubinga handled planes, now’s the time!
