Kits for Planes, Spokeshaves and Shoulder Planes
NEW! Scraper Plane Kit
We're so sorry to disappoint but these are not ready for shipment yet. Isaac Fisher is our woodworker for all of our kits. His shop was destroyed by fire in late April so we've had to push back the launch on these indefinitely. He's hoping for September or October and are doing everything we can to get him up and running again. You are welcome to pre-order now but please be patient. If you'd like to help Isaac here is the GoFundMe page where you can donate to his recovery effort.
These kits are precision-made from bubinga or jatoba (bubinga is now listed as a threatened species by CITES so we're switching to jatoba as the supply dwindles*). The O1 Hock blade is bedded at 95° and hardened to Rc56 for burr "rollability". The parts are taller than our Krenov-style Plane Kit (below) to allow for necessary blade access and a comfortable grip.

Krenov-style Plane Kit
Our precision made kit provides a quick, sure way to realize the satisfaction of using a handmade wooden plane. Complete with a HOCK PLANE-IRON ASSEMBLY all you need is a drill, some clamps, glue, a knife to adjust the throat, sandpaper (or plane) to true the sole, and a means of sharpening the iron. A HOCK kit is ideal for the novice as well as the professional woodworker who can't find the time to make a plane (or another one or two...) Our design is a basic Krenov-style, flat-bottom wooden plane -- simple and elegant. We accurately mill bubinga or jatoba (bubinga is now listed as a threatened species by CITES so we're switching to jatoba as the supply dwindles*) for the body parts to eliminate the need for an additional sole plate.

Block Plane Kit
We offer a smaller version of our ever-popular Krenov-style wooden plane kit. This handy Block Plane comes with a 1" wide blade, ends up 5 3/4" long and trims down to 5" or less depending on your needs. Isaac made the one pictured here just 3 1/2" long -- a very convenient size for an apron pocket.

Shoulder Plane Kit
Our Shoulder Plane Kit is precision-made from beech and bubinga or jatoba (bubinga is now listed as a threatened species by CITES so we're switching to jatoba as the supply dwindles*) for beauty, performance and durability. This easy-to-assemble kit requires only a drill (for the locator dowels), some glue and clamps, and some fine tuning and shaping to complete. The bevel-down blade is bedded at 37.5° for low-angle end-grain planing of shoulders. Our high-carbon, 3/16" thick x 3/4" wide Tee Blade (#SH075) is included.
A fun, simple and affordable way to add a shoulder plane to your arsenal... er, tool kit.
