Customer Reviews

I own and recommend WoodRiver V3 planes. These planes are very well made and have an excellent price point making them a "BEST VALUE." One of the most common question I get asked is, "What planes should I buy?"  Of course the answer is, "That depends."   I've made this decision a little easier for you by putting together four hand plane kits to meet your experience level and budget: Minimalist, Apprentice, Journeyman, and Master Craftsman kits.

  • Minimalist Kit: This kit is designed for the woodworker who wants to get by with the fewest number of planes possible and has no intention to buy additional planes.  This is what I call a “bare bones” kit, but it still has the ability to tackle most planing tasks.  You might not have the best tool for the job but you can make do with what you have.  With the #6 Fore Plane, while not long enough to be a really effective jointer plane, you can still joint an edge and flatten short to medium length boards.  It is also very effective on the shooting board.  The Low Angle Block Plane is a one-handed solution for when the #6 is simply too big.  The 3/4" wide #92 Medium Shoulder Plane will handle most all tenon shoulder trimming jobs and give you the capability to plane rabits and clean up tenons.

  • Apprentice Kit:  This kit is designed for beginning handtool Woodworkers as they develop their skills, just like an apprentice.  Later, as your skills improve, this kit becomes the core set of tools to which you will add other planes.  This kit contains the #7 Jointer Plane,  #5-1/2 Jack Plane, Low Angle Block Plane, and the #92 Medium Shoulder Plane.            

  • Journeyman's Kit:  This kit builds upon the Apprentice Kit.  It is designed for the advanced handtool woodworker who needs a wide range of capability to match their growing skills.  This kit contains all the planes form the Apprentice Kit plus a #91 Small Shoulder Plane for more detailed work and a Chisel Plane for getting into tight places. 

  • Master Craftsman's Kit:  This kit builds upon the Journeyman's Kit.  It is designed for the handtool woodworker that wants a complete set of bench planes to tackle most every planing situation.  Contains all the Journeyman's Kit plus a #4-1/2 Smoothing Plane for maximum capacity work.

  • Sorry no U.S. orders on WoodRiver planes - See Woodcraft.

  • PLANE PREPARATION SERVICE. For only $40 we offer a complete plane preparation service, for one bench plane, so that no set-up is required by you. Your plane will be ready to use 'out-of-the-box!  All planes require some preparation if you want to get those nice wispy  shavings and a beautiful wood surface. Let us do the work for you.  (See Product Details tab for what is included).
