Wooden Block Plane...now live!

Introducing the newest addition to the Bywater Surf shop - the Wooden Block Plane. This traditional style plane is perfect for shaping internal curves and concaves. They have been used on our wooden surfboards and handboards with ease and excitement. These received great feedback and interest at the recent Wooden Boat Festival in Tasmania, with many keen to add to their collection. 

They are designed and made at Bywater Surf, crafted from birch plywood, featuring brass pins and a hardened steel blade. The birch plywood body is durable yet lightweight, the brass pins add a touch of elegance and the blade is easily adjustable, to customise the depth of the cut to fit your needs. It provides a comfortable grip and natural feel in your hand. The birch plywood has a warm, natural look that will only get better with age and use.
