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."

 All of our WoodRiver bench planes receive our Cosman preparation service so they are100% ready to use out of the box.  See prep service below for description of what we do.

Jack planes are general-purpose bench planes, typically with bodies between 13 and 16 inches long.  As the name implies they are a "jack of all trades" and can perform most of the work of a smoother and on small and medium stock can perform as a jointer plane.

I use my WoodRiver No. 5-1/2 Jack plane for 85% of all my planing operations.  It is my "go to" plane and I recommend it as your first plane purchase.
