Default Jig for Plane Totes

I have been making totes and front handles for my increasing collection of Stanley/Record bench planes. All from Bubinga (African Rosewood - not!)To save my fingers, I made a simple jig to mount the totes for rounding over on the router, I just flip it over for the other side as the jig is te same thockness as the totes. A nice quick and safe method. I thought of adding handles, but there is plenty of grip and the handles would have to be reversable, The jig then holds the tote for rasping and sanding in the vice or on the bench.

Smart design Mike. You should do a photo shoot of the entire process and post it under general woodworking; I am sure it would inspire others to try this. I am not a big fan of using planes but your work is very nice indeed.
