Sorry, our agreement with Woodcraft restricts us from shipping WoodRiver Planes to the U.S.

This is WoodRiver's No 1 bench plane.  It is modelled after Stanley's No 1.  Technically it's a smoothing plane but practically it's just too small to efficiently function as a smoother.  It's about the size of a small block plane but a block plane is easier to hold.  This plane has all the features of a regular bench plane except for a lateral adjustment lever (The Stanley No 1 didn't have a lateral adjustment lever either!).  You laterally adjust it with hammer taps to the side of the blade.  Sharpen it and it functions just like its full sized cousins.  What I think this plane is really good for is a nice gift or desk ornament for a woodworker.  Its just sooooo cute!

  • Fully functional miniature smoothing plane.

  • 1-1⁄2" wide x 5-3⁄4" long.

  • T-10 high carbon steel blade.

  • Ductile iron castings with fully machined frog.

  • Soles and sides are machined flat and square.

  • Lightly finished Bubinga tote and knob.

Terrific. after brief honing, worked as desired.

Perfect for learning

Bought this for my son as he lives woodworking. He kept saying my older Stanley's were too heavy. He loves this and constantly wants to be using it.

Order from Germany

This is the first time I've ordered. Since I come from Germany, I was very excited about the processing of my order. And what can I say, nice contact, fast processing and delivery and of course it was packed super safe. And on top of that there was maple syrup.
The plane I ordered is very well made. Due to the great experience I immediately ordered the next planer. I will definitely order more often here.
