Shop Skills #1: Cabinet Scrapers Exposed!

12-18-2008 04:55 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 48 comments »

The buzz about scrapers… Lately, talk of the cabinet scraper and the frustration that this little tool inflicts on a character has created some buzz in the LJ community. This simple, inexpensive, and very effective tool also frustrates me, but for a different reason. I see many people missing out on the joy of using this tool because they are fed too much information that clouds the simple truth. On the other hand… On one hand I appreciate the histories and detailed accou...

Making the Podcast Rounds

11-13-2012 04:27 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

Hey guys – I was a guest on a couple of podcasts last week (I am way behind on timely blog entries.) First, I joined LJ member Marc Spagnuolo at the WoodWhisperer Guild. You need to be a member to access this podcast where we talk about doing built-ins. We cover several of the techniques, strategies and things to look for as you design and install a built-in project. If you are on the fence about if you should join the Guild or not, I will say that as a person that makes my living...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #21: I got a new jig in a card game!

05-14-2012 01:12 AM by StumpyNubs | 33 comments »

Sharpening card scrapers was never so easy, or so much fun… This week is all about card scrapers: how to sharpen them, how to use them, we make a rack to store them and a jig to burnish them. Along the way we do some fooling around and talk about Roy Underhill’s mustache! There are two projects in this episode, a tool review and a detailed demonstration of cabinet scraping goodness. Check out more episodes at Stumpynubs.com. Enjoy!

Destoration of a Stanley #80 Cabinet Scraper

02-01-2014 04:41 AM by Brad | 12 comments »

A couple of years ago, I was rummaging through a dusty box of vintage tools at an estate sale. My wish list at the time included a Stanley #80 cabinet scraper. I wanted something for wily-grained woods. That’s because my smoothing planes did as much tearing out as they did smoothing of those species. So when I saw this beauty, I dug deep in my pocket for the $3.00 dollars we agreed upon. It had a few peculiarities. Like this homemade “iron” that obviously came from an old sawpl...

ToolGloat Thanks to a fellow LJ

05-24-2012 09:05 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 10 comments »

The other day I received a private mail from Jeepturner. He had seen a post I had made, and in it I had mentioned that I was on the lookout for a cabinet scraper. A Stanley #80 or something comparable. I had watched ebay and craigslist for one. Jeepturner, in his email, said that he had one kicking around that he had aquired at a yard sale someplace. He asked me if I wanted it, just pay the cost of shipping. Get this. I tried to negotiate a higher price to give him something for it. The mo...

The Sawdust Chronicles Challenge #2: Okay, uncambered smoothing plane. You got my attention.

05-05-2009 11:39 AM by Eric | 6 comments »

Okay, so I had 30 minutes to work on the TSDC desk organizer build challenge. I figured the first step is to prep my stock – plane, then sand if necessary. I’m hot and grumpy. It’s like 85 to 90 degrees outside, like always, and I don’t have any fan in the shop. But my Stanley #4 seems to be doing its job pretty well. At least, until I ran my hand over the board. So I guess I’m going to work on cambering my blade before doing anything else. Either that ...

Starting the Journey #1: Crossing the Line

12-05-2013 10:27 PM by Tommy Evans | 5 comments »

I might have crossed a line today. I had picked up a Kunz #80 scraper for $7.50 and a Sargent 409 for $12 at an auction a couple of weeks ago. There was a real nice Stanley #5 but it sold for $65 and I do have one of those. I tried out the scraper yesterday after learning which was the front. Turns out I’m a puller, not a pusher. All it would do is make a tiny pile of sawdust from the left end of the blade. Figured today would be a good time to learn setting up the #80, so...
