Hi Folks
I thought you might want to see some of the interesting planes that have been coming out of the workshop in recent weeks. It's hot here as Summer hits home but that doesn't stop me making planes!

First up is the Small Plow plane. This is a very useful tool, one I used to make a lot of a few years ago. So it's now back on the website as a standard production model.

Next up is the Side Bead - this is a very popular plane so I have added some extra sizes. It's now available in 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" so there's one to suit work of any scale.

I've recently completed a Try plane and Coffin Smoother for a customer in Sweden. He wanted to have both planes upgraded with 6mm thick irons over the "standard" 4mm - I was happy to oblige and they turned out great! I make all planes to order so it's easy for me to customise them to your particular needs - just drop me an email!

Finally something quite special. A Smoothing plane with tote, brass lever cap, 6mm thick high carbon steel Iron and a super tough Partridge wood dovetailed sole. Long time readers may well recognise this plane as I used to make something similar years ago and a customer has been chasing me to build one for him - voila!

So there you go, a small selection of the planes that have been heading out of the workshop. With the recent Brexit worries the British Pound has been hit making this a great time for customers from around the world to purchase a plane from me at an even better price than usual - drop me an email at to discuss your needs.
