The Lazarus Handplane Co. is me, Mateo Panzica. I am a life long wood and metal worker. I've worked in diverse fields. Furniture making, bronze casting, fine antique conservation, and building timberframe structures... just to name a few. I've now turned my attention to tool making.
My planes (blades and all) are made by myself. I strive to offer beautifully constructed tools at reasonable prices. Whether a gentleman woodworker or seasoned professional, we chose the pursuit of this craft for fulfillment. Your tools should aid you in this pursuit... not hinder it. I make tools that are a pleasure to use.
Happy woodworking, Mateo.
