The Hovel walnut base has a dual function, as a home for your Hovel Pencil Plane when using it to beautifully sharpen your pencils and as a chamber for shavings as you sharpen. It is the perfect, safe place to store your Hovel sharpener so that the blade is not exposed. Machined from dark walnut, the wooden base is the perfect companion to your Hovel and looks great on any desk.

This product is sold separately to the Hovel sharpener. We recommend purchasing this wooden base whenever you purchase the sharpener. Check out our Combined Hovel Plane and Wooden Base package.

Cork bases have been released in London but we are yet to receive our stock, when we do receive them we will create a separate listing.

Makers Cabinet packaging is paper-based and is 100% recyclable

Makers Cabinet design, manufacture and sell beautiful drawing and writing tools that are built to last a lifetime. Their products use time honoured mechanisms and materials to create objects that wear ‘in’ rather than wearing ‘out’.

The brand’s ‘Høvel’ pencil plane enables you to whittle your pencil perfectly to any desired point. ‘Iris’ is a unique circle drawing tool inspired by camera apertures. Both products are machined from solid brass and then polished to a perfect finish. They patina with time and use; creating heirloom quality tools for creative practice.

Makers Cabinet uses crowdfunding to create the first batch of each product and once in production they are sold from their London Workshop and to specialist shops like The PaintBox.
