Hope you are feeling better after your recent illness and haven’t returned to work too soon, are Woodriver Planes ever going to be available over here in the UK. I tried to buy the Shoulder Plane on your site but it wouldn’t allow shipping outside Canada/USA. I tried Woodriver but they don’t ship here either, I have about as many planes as anyone would need but was just wondering if they were as good as people say. But recently I’ve noticed that Woodcraft has been coming out with hand tool products that aren’t just copies of other tools that are in production by competitors. That’s a good thing, as more and more people are getting into the hand tool stuff. The WoodRiver Block Plane is based on the venerable Stanley #65 low angle and #18 standard angle Knuckle Cap” design, generally considered one of best block plane designs around. The Woodriver has a slightly larger adjustment knob and also a bearing on the right/left adjustment lever.
I know Woodcraft got some heat for the copies, and they had to update and fix a bunch of quality issues right out of the gate, but one way to look at it is that there is enough demand now for these kinds of tools. The hardwood handles made from highly polished Bubinga needed no reworking to fit my fairly large hands. The lateral-adjust levers are now robust and made using two pieces, like the old Bed Rocks.

These days I restore vintage Stanley hand planes if I can get one at a decent price. It has always impressed me that Robin Lee (Lee Valley Tools) actually frequents the woodworking forums. The sole itself was also dead flat—or as flat as my meager assortment of measuring tools can indicate. Sure I paid top dollar for my tools, but I don’t have any tools that sit on a shelf and laugh at me every time I walk into my shop.
Also, the only other…I hesitate to use the word complaint, because I’m too new to the art of working wood to know any better…is that when the chipbreaker/iron/lever cap assembly is fully seated in the plane, the depth adjust has what feels like 1/4 to 1/2 a turn of play in it before it engages. Rob doesn’t ship the Woodriver planes outside of Canada, but most everything else on his site he will ship to US. WoodRiver V3 Bench Planes are based on the classic, time-tested Bedrock design. I hope Woodcraft continues the trend of quality tools that are of their own design.
I was also thinking about the Woodriver plane (from woodcraft) that runs about $135 US.
