Oliver Sparks Violin Makers Plane

A beautifully wrapped little parcel arrived today finished off with a blob of ceiling wax.

This little plane is just 30 mm (1 1/4") long with a 1/2" wide blade.

The dovetails are superb for such a tiny scale and the mouth is very tight. Despite its diminutive size it is very comfortable to hold (one handed of course) and works very well.

I have an antique violins makers plane, they make a great pair. I believe Oliver has another two of these planes for sale if anyone is interested.


  1. I have my own antique violin maker’s plane, but the Oliver has another two of such planes for sale. So if anyone interested. Kindly contact.

  2. Violins are a very classical instrument to play, used by classical musicians and rock musicians alike. It has an amazing sound, and when you have a child who learns how to play it, they will have the ability to spring board to other types of instruments. violin lessons
