Mesquite: This is our featured wood for planes. Mesquite is heavy, hard, beautiful, and very stable. It is one of the only woods where the ratio of tangential to radial shrinkage approaches 1:1.

Quartersawn Hard Maple: This is used for the sole and body. It is a very dense and hardwearing wood. We pair this with either Cherry or Black Walnut for the sides and handles.

Custom Woods: Since our planes are all handmade, we have the ability to use a wood of your choice or even make a plane out of wood that you supply. Just call for details.
