The Oboe Tools planing board is one of those things one has been waiting for without knowing it: precisely made, ingeniously designed and elegantly manufactured. The Graf board I have used for decades has served me well, but at last I have found something that will do the crucial preparatory job of cane preparation better, faster and more flexibly. My congratulations to Oboe Tools; I only wish I had thought of it first.

My new planing board from Oboe Tools is exactly what I was looking for. It is light and compact enough to travel easily, the brass guides help my planer to slide very smoothly, and the machine work is beautiful. Oboe Tools took my measurement specifications very precisely, and the resulting planed cane is always consistent.
