Hand Planes

Hand Planes top our list - if woodworking handtools were to be ranked in order of importance, the bench plane would surely be at the top of almost every woodworker's list. The Hand Plane's versatility, accuracy, efficiency, and the sheer pleasure to be had from its use for centuries made it the very symbol of fine tools and fine craft. We offer one of the largest hand plane selections in the world, including economical planes from Stanley, European and specialty planes, and the impeccable quality of Clifton and Lie Nielsen fine hand planes. It may come as a surprise, but a well tuned hand plane with a sharp edge can produce a straighter edge, a tighter, stronger joint, or a smoother surface than power tools are capable of.
