When sharpened and used properly, it produces a finish that surpasses that made by sandpaper.  Because I keep my jack plane sharpened I normally don’t need to use a smoother, but on those occasions when I do, I reach for my WoodRiver # 4-\/2. \u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHeavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eFully machined adjustable frogs bedded at a 45 degree angle.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eIts thick steel blade and chipbreaker dampens vibration, making for solid planing.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eLightly finished Bubinga handles provide comfort and control.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eSole and sides are machined flat and square within tightly held tolerances.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eThree WoodRiver smoothing planes available: #3, #4, and #4-½. \u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eThe manufacturer Incorporates input from users and experts to constantly improve their product.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\n\u003cspan style=\"color: #ff0000;\"\u003eSorry no U.S. orders on WoodRiver planes - See Woodcraft\u003c\/span\u003e.\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"text-decoration: underline;\"\u003ePLANE PREPARATION SERVICE. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eFor only $25 we offer a complete plane preparation service, for one plane, so that no set-up is required by you.

I carefully unpacked, disassembled, inspected and cleaned. The tapped holes and threads are very precise and high quality. A drop of oil was added later when re-assembling. The large depth adjuster wheel is nice. Because the depth adjuster wheel diameter is large, I took extra care when loosening the frog screws. Note.. My individual frog screws were a little tight. I used a proper fitting (both width thickness) slotted screw driver. The sole is very smooth, flat and square to the cheeks well within machining specifications. The attractive rear tote and front knob are very comfortable for a #3 hand plane. The thick blade and unique chip breaker design are both very high quality. Finally performance of the plane iron as shipped worked very good on maple when set to take thin shavings.”      - Woodhog, November 2014\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“This is the 5th WoodRiver plane I have purchased (second No3) and will probably be the last, only because they are so good that they will last a lifetime. Like all the WoodRiver planes they are exceptional value for money and prove that chineese made dosn't mean poor quality. After a small amount of tunning and honning, it produced ultra thin shavings on the hardest of timbers effortlessly. The blade is a nice heavy-weight thickness and takes and holds an edge fantasticly. I am someone that is fanatical about sharpness, and this blade really impresses. The chip breaker and cap are again nice and heavy and make for a great combination, producing no chatter or clogging, just smooth swish shavings. The only thing as good as how this plane performs, is how it looks and feels in your hand. Very well finished and a pleasure to hold. If you don't have a reason to use it, you'll find one just so you can.”     - Dutchy, March 2012\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“This plane was a pleasant surprise.

WoodRiver Smoothing Planes

Product Description

I own and recommend WoodRiver V3 planes. These planes are based on the reliable Stanley Bedrock design, they 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 sharpened I normally don’t need to use a smoother, but on those occasions when I do, I reach for my WoodRiver # 4-/2. 

  • Heavy, stress-relieved ductile iron castings.

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

  • Its thick steel blade and chipbreaker dampens vibration, making for solid planing.

  • Lightly finished Bubinga handles provide comfort and control.

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

  • Three WoodRiver smoothing planes available: #3, #4, and #4-½. 

  • The manufacturer Incorporates input from users and experts to constantly improve their product.

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

      This is our owner and founder - Rob.  He is the shop master, our woodworking guru, the source of all woodworking knowledge, without him we are nothing! (He also signs our paychecks so we have to say that!).

       

      This is Jake, son of Rob.  He is the CEO of the Rob Cosman Global Logistics Center and he also shoots all the videos. If your package did not arrive on time its Jake's fault, not ours!  If the Rob Cosman video you are watching shakes too much its Jake's fault, not ours!  Basically if its bad its Jake's fault, not ours!

       

      This is Dave, friend of Rob.  Dave is head of shop production, the shop DJ, and the shop's union steward. He keeps production on union schedule, maintains the shop equipment, and always has tunes on his phone.  Just don't park your car behind his truck!

         

      This is Frick, son-in-law of Rob. He is our techie.  He edits all the videos and pictures and is the administrator of the online workshop website.  We have to tolerate him because he makes the grandkids.

        

      This is COL Luther - affectionately know as Luthie, friend of Rob.  He helps run Rob's Purple Heart Project and helps with the website.  He will do just about anything we ask as long as we feed him boiled peanuts and grits.
