So i decided to add another Wood River Plane by woodcraft to my collection. This is only my second hand plane purchase, so bear with me on terminology. Overall the plane has a nice weight. It is comfortable in the hand and it really feels like you’re holding onto a nice piece of metal. The Bubinga handles are shaped well and have a beautiful finish!

I bought the WoodRiver #62 a few weeks ago and I have really enjoyed using it. Out of the box it requires a little tuning but only 30 minutes or so. The blades were not sharp at all and they were not flat either. Using DMT diamond stones coarse and fine then a leather strop the blades sharpened up quickly and hold an edge all day.
