New Glue Pot, Planing and Sawing Rosewood

This glue new Herdim glue pot is one of the few "power" tools I've got in the new shop. No more band saw and no more thickness sander sadly. I was hesitant to part with my old hold-heat glue pot, but I quite like this one and appreciate that one can adjust the temperature much more than I imagined.

Spent the afternoon sharpening blades, joined some boards, cut the waste off of a set of Indian rosewood sides to use for bindings later and then started bringing them down to thickness. Getting some nice clean rosewood shavings!
