Default Chopstick Master V2

John's Blog - Behind the Scenes at Bridge City Tool Works

This version does away with the saw and carriage and uses the plane to put the finial on.

Price is reduced to $195 too.

Pretty amazing price - you get the chopstick master, the plane, and all the accessories for less than you'd pay for the plane alone!

I'm keen to see the new version. It's certainly a lot smaller than the old one. Could be a great Christmas gift...

And you can use it to make pyramid plugs for your craftsman furniture...

I couldn't justify dropping cash on the first edition, this new price point makes it a bit easier. I look forward to seeing a vid of it in action.

GO check out John's blog post - there's a video of John planing the finial on the end of a chopstick. It's pretty cool: the depth skids on the plane allow the plane to rotate to make a skewed cut - very clever!

Here's the link:
