Fine Wooden Planes. Made in England. Est. 2007

Traditional Wooden Planes made in England.

Phil Edwards is the craftsman behind Philly Planes, who are reviving the lost art of wooden plane making in the UK. As a woodworker with a passion for hand tools, planes in particular, it was inevitable that he would end up making them himself. From his workshop in Broadstone, Dorset he makes each individual plane by hand.  

Our planes are based on traditional designs and are made using the finest materials - carefully selected and well seasoned hardwoods and Sheffield high carbon steel. The O1 cutting irons are all made in-house (including heat treatment and tempering) to ensure a quality blade that will take and hold a fine cutting edge.  The planes are made one at a time, using traditional methods and plane making tools.


 I have a limited amount of reproduction Charlesworth knife sharpening clamps - see here for details.

Snecked or Nibbed Plane Irons - I am now offering these for planemakers or to replace worn out irons on old miter planes. See here for details or on the tools page.

Don't forget we make a wide selection of planes from the the smallest block plane through to a a 30 inch Jointer and everything in-between -  if you can't see what you are after on the site just email us with your requirements. All planes are made one at a time so we can customise any order to your specific requirements (i.e. different bedding angle, iron top profile, wedge profile) Please email me for further information.
