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.

Plane Description:

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

  • Includes our Cosman 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.  All planes require some preparation.  Our complete plane preparation service makes it so that no set-up is required by you. Your plane will be ready to use 'out-of-the-box!  Our Plane Preparation Service includes: 

  • Chamfering / ease the edges of the plane.

  • Ensuring the lateral adjustment lever moves freely.

  • Removing all of the shipping grease.

  • Flattening the sole to within +/- 0.0015 of an inch perfectly flat.
  • Squaring the sides to within +/- 0.0015 of the sole.
  • Flattening the back of the lever cap.

  • Flattening and fitting the chip-breaker to the blade.

  • Applying a back bevel to and sharpening the blade up.

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