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 are 100% ready to use out of the box.  See prep service below for description of what we do.

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

  • No. 4 Plane size: 2-7/16” wide x 9-7/8”long with 2”wide blade.

  • Includes our Plane Preparation Service.
  • 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.

    Plane Preparation Service Includes:

    • Chamfer / ease the edges of the plane.
    • Tune the lateral adjustment lever.

    • Remove all of the shipping grease.

    • Ensure the sides are within +/- 1.5 thousandths of an inch of square to the sole.
    • Flatten the back of the lever cap.

    • Flatten and fit the chip-breaker to the blade.

    • Apply a back bevel and sharpen the blade.

    • Test the plane for proper operation and set-up.

    • Apply a light coat of Camellia oil to prevent rust.
