One pair of 3/8″ match planes available

We currently have one pair of 3/8″ match planes back in stock, along with several of the 1/2″ size.  These planes are used in pairs to create the tongue and groove joint, and the small sizes are well suited to furniture elements.  One plane cuts the tongue, and the other the groove.  More information can be found here.

Side bead planes back in stock

Another batch of side bead planes is now available in the store for immediate delivery.  Sizes include 1/8″, 3/16″, 1/4″, and 3/8″.  These planes came from several boards of exceptional quality beech, all dead quarter sawn and displaying prominent medullary rays. The tree was a large diameter making the grain quite straight, and in most planes, showing the quartered grain on both sides.  Planes are bedded at 55 degrees and are boxed with persimmon.  More information about side beads can be found here.
