WoodRiver Ultimate Bench Plane Kit
WoodRiver V3 Bench Planes are based on the classic, time-tested Bedrock design. The original Bedrock Planes have proven to be among the most enduring, collectable tools in all of woodworking, and for good reason—they work. WoodRiver V3s are their modern equivalent. Although not faithful reproductions, they are inspired interpretations of these classics. The Ultimate V3 Set includes four planes— #3, #4, #5 and #6—each featuring heavy stress relieved ductile iron castings, precise machining and extra thick plane blades.
