Make-at-home Handplane Kit


Make A Handplane At Home.

Right now, the restorative power of making and reconnecting with your own two hands, and with each other, has never been more important. So, if you can’t join us in the workshop, you can order this handplane kit and get making at home.

The handplane blank we’ll send is what we provide at the start of all of our workshops. Made from cedar off-cuts that are laminated over a mould to provide a concave that runs along the length of the handplane and featuring a pre-cut hand hole or left solid if you choose to have a strap. The blank will have a couple of templates penciled onto it and is ready to be cut, shaped, sanded and oiled ready for its first splash in the sea.

The tool kit contains everything you’ll need to finish your handplane.

It includes a Japanese saw, a rasp, two clamps, a sanding block, two grades of sandpaper and a bottle of oil.

You can purchase the tool kit on its own; handy if you have your eye on a piece of wood in the back garden or for families who might want multiple blanks, but only the one set of tools.

It you buy one of our kits, you may need some guidance on how to make it at home. Here’s a link to some instructions.
