Re: WoodRiver #91 shoulder plane

North of the Border
Among the Veritas small, med and large, hands down for me it's the medium. The large is out unless you do a lot of wide tenons and things like that. Skilled, you can do the job of a large shoulder plane with a med. size, while the medium is easier and more comfortable to handle. The small is too light weight for me and the feel is just not right.

Of course, before you choose, you should, if you can, handle all of them and make some test cuts.
