Customer Reviews

Sorry, our agreement with Woodcraft restricts us from shipping WoodRiver Planes to the U.S.

I own and recommend WoodRiver V3 planes. These planes are based on the reliable Stanley Bedrock design, are very well made, and have an excellent price point making them a "BEST VALUE."

Traditionally, a smoothing plane is the last plane used on a wood surface. When sharpened and used properly, it produces a finish that surpasses that made by sandpaper.  

Because I keep my jack plane freshly sharpened I normally don’t need to use a smoother, but on those occasions when I do, I reach for my WoodRiver No. 4-1/2.   

I think the No. 3 is useful for teenagers and folks with very small hands and low body weight that would find a No. 4 and No. 4-1/2 too big or heavy to use.

  • No. 3 Plane size: 2-1/4” W x 9-5/16”L with 1-3/4”W blade.

  • Heavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings.

  • Fully machined adjustable frogs bedded at a 45 degree angle.

  • Thick steel blade and chipbreaker dampens vibration making solid planing.

  • Lightly finished Bubinga handles provide comfort and control.

  • Soles and sides are machined flat and square within tightly held tolerances.
