All our handplanes are hand made one by one, and we don’t make mass production –although we try to always have a few ready to go. That is why we allow a 15 day period to make your handplane.
The handplane blank comes with the outline already cut, with drilled grooves to tie the strap. Of course you can modify the outline, but be careful not to make it too small: just place you hand between the grooves and imagine how it will fit to the new outline.
Our handplanes are made with paulownia wood scraps from our surfboard and longskate production. Paulownia is an environmentally friendly, fast-growing tree that gives a light, flexible and water resistant wood. Needless to say, all the waste produced during the building process is basically wood sawdust, which is recycled into biomass or as organic substratum.
All our handplanes are shaped by hand, just as we do with our surfboards and skateboards. This means that every handplane we make is truly unique, with its own personality. To certify its authenticity, each board comes engraved with its serial number and the shaper’s signature.
Our handplanes are made of solid wood and are coated with water-based varnish. This means that whenever you want, you can sand all the scratches, fill the dings with wood filler, and give a couple coats of varnish to have a brand new hadnplane
