Fine Hand Planes for Fine Woodworking
How To Order a Brese Plane, I have stopped taking new orders and will be offering completed planes for sale as they are available. Check my blog periodically to see what's avaialable.
To place an order for a Brese Plane is really very simple. While on the page of the plane you wish to order just click on the "Buy Now" button and that link will take you to page where you can place a deposit ($200.00 for most planes and $600.00 for the 125-38SBP) for the plane and this puts your order in the cue. I will contact you via email when I receive notification of your order to get the details about wood choice, etc. Before I begin work on your plane I will contact you again to verify the details of your order.
Note: We no longer have a "Shopping Cart". Each item ordered will required a separate transaction. If you plan to order multiple items (more than 2) contact me and I can send you a payment request for the total of the deposits.
But before you click the 'Buy Now" button there are a couple of things you may need to know.
All planes are made to order. The lead time required to have your plane made can run anywhere from 8 to 14 months depending on the number of orders I have in house at a given time. The 125-38SBP has a shorter lead time of approximately 4 months. You may want to send an email to find out what the lead time will be on the plane you would like.
If you have questions concerning any of the tools we offer please contact me to ask any questions. My contact information is listed below. You may have a custom request and I can let you know if that can be accommodated, or you may just want to know if I presently have inventory of the particular wood you would like for your plane.
