Modern Woodshop Tools

This re-design of an electric planer brings the charm and elegance traditional woodworking hand tools together with a new ergonomic handling concept; reducing wrist tension. Have the most modern and sexy looking woodshop in the neighborhood!

The tool’s versatile handling options reduces tension and muscle pain during work, especially holding the tool body underneath the handle bar. It’s covered with CPC, a biodegradable cork-polymere composite material, with a high level of water vapor permability and excellent noise and vibration absorbing properties.

The battery driven electric planer is started by pressing the pressure sensitive safety bar under the handle together with the start button. As soon as the pressure is released from the safety bar, the planer stops.

Due to the symmetrical nature of its construction, the Freehand Planer is as easy to use for right-handed and left-handed people.

Designer: Mario Weiss

    ok what is shown is a orbital sander, not a planer (you know a high speed rotating blade) and if it is a simple typo then ok. If it is supposed to be a planer then that funky front knob they have is for a reason, control, and without it they can and will get real wild on you. The look is fine, dont know about the cork as your working in a enviorment full of wood dust and that might be a issue with it becoming slick. Its a nice consumerish design, might have traction with the mid market like black and decker.

    @zippyflounder: it is not an orbital sander…it is in fact a planer…though given its size i would think most woodworkers would rather use an old fashioned hand planer..than this power version…odd design aside.

    Picture 2, silvery metal thing. With those corners, an accident waiting to happen.

    I’d probably rip the skin off my knuckles if I were to slip just one time.
