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. With our workshop courses temporarily suspended, we are creating some #stayathome make-your-own handplane kits that we can send out to you.
The handplane blank is what we provide at the start of all of our workshops. Made from cedar, with a pre-cut handhole, that is laminated over a mould to provide a concave that runs along the length of the handplane. This is ready to be cut, shaped, sanded and oiled ready for its first splash in the sea.
The tool kit includes everything you'll need to finish your handplane. It will include 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.
We'd still like to get together to make, so we'll be creating a couple of virtual sessions for us to work through the making process with you, just like we normally do in our workshop. We will contact you after purchase to arrange these.
PLEASE ENSURE YOU SELECT YES OR NO FROM EACH OF THE DROP DOWN OPTIONS BELOW TO CUSTOMISE YOUR KIT.
We don't have any testimonials for this, yet. If you've ordered one and would like to tell us your thoughts please get in touch.
