    These are cool but can you explain to me how anyone is willing to pay for a handplane? They all seem way expensive. I hate to be negative but really?

    I guess if you don’t want to pay you could just steal a plastic tray from taco bell…. Old school style. Things that are hand crafted take time….

    For a little piece of wood with a strap on it? Yes $100 is expensive. I understand it takes time to make (and they are very well made and I like them)but I believe if I spent the time, I could make one and would feel bad about myself charging someone 100 bux. And yeah why not just use a frisbee or food tray 🙂 Again not trying to be negative. I just don’t get it.

    “I believe if I spent the time, I could make one” …but you didn’t.

    There are those who create and those who critique. Which side are you on?

    I am on the creators side, I love art, wish I could afford it but when it comes to hand planes I just don’t get it. Obviously you are not getting my point. It’s all good.

    Oh I don’t know maybe 50 bucks. But I wouldn’t make and sell these things, it seems silly to me and wouldn’t want to rip people off. This is a stupid conversation. Sorry I brought it up.

    By the way I was just expressing my opinion and no one ever answered the original question.

    this site is great in suporting do it yourselfers and embracing individuals and their form of surfing.

    they will glass a blank you shape at home and they put up videos from kordory. and show their neighbors surfboard experiments.

    so if you want to make a hand plane make a hand plane if you want to make your own shirt go for it. at the same time if my sister, ex or girlfriend was looking for something for me for some holiday – well 1 out of the 3 prob would make one herself the other two would not.

    if i ended up with a hand plane to keep in the trunk or travel with i would be stoked wether a DIY or ready made.

    I bought a brownfish hand plane. I’m a rotten woodworker. Plus I don’t enjoy mucking through projects. It’s frustrating and the end result for me is that I waste an afternoon, or more, and the finished product sucks.

    People were raving about hand planes so I thought I’d give it a try. It works great, is fun to use, is still in good condition and I think it’s got a more pleasing feel and look than a frisbee or taco tray . Plus me buying it supported some other guy’s wood-working stoke and hobby/business.

    I get that some hobbyists or guys that could make one themselves would think it was silly, possibly-poseurish/yuppy-ish to buy one. In fact, I’ve gotten some wry-smiled “nice hand plane” comments from the boys in the parking lot. But whatever. If I could easily make one as good, I would. But I can’t.

    Anyway, to answer your question, that’s why at least one person (me) bought one. Not saying others should or shouldn’t, but that’s why I did.
    I agree they are pricey. And indeed, that has kept me from buying another. But I don’t feel ripped off. Though others might say I was. But people say a lot of things. And I can’t listen to them all.
