...in Which Tim Sharpens a Card Scraper.

234 days ago by Tim Anderson | 15 comments »

So, I’ve seen tons of videos, read more blog posts than I remember, and tried myself many times to follow all the different methods for sharpening a card scraper I’ve found online. After finally getting the hang of it, I wanted to post my simple no-nonsense method so you can all sharpen card scrapers with ease as well. It’s really quite a bit simpler than people have made it out to be. Required items:1. Unsharpened Card Scraper (If you don’t have this, why read t...

Restoring An Old Butcher Block

246 days ago by JayG46 | 3 comments »

I’m home for Christmas and naturally, my mom gave me a project to keep me busy. Since it was woodworking related, I was more than happy to take it on. About thirty years ago, my parents bought a maple butcher block from a restaurant supply store. It has been a part of their kitchen ever since and has held up pretty well, all things considered. But over time, it has become a little grimy it was definitely time for a serious refinishing. We don’t have a powered sander here, so...

Southwest end tables #8: Top levelled and ready for the sides.

337 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 11 comments »

Howdy, Not much time for woodshop lately but I have been able to put a little time in here and there. Today was about 4 hours. Here is where I’m at. I did some hand planning to get it in earshot range. I used a stiff metal yardstick like a scree to reveal high spots. Len – listen up please. I grabbed a card scraper and took down some of the ridges left by the planning. I know I need to keep working on the scraper edge. I ended up using the ROS after my hands got tired...

840 days ago 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!

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #7: The tool kit part 5 (lifesavers)

1102 days ago by RGtools | 13 comments »

Both of these tools are very optional for the build…in fact I hope you don’t need these. I really do. I would love it if all your tenons come out perfect and that all of your planed surfaces come out gleaming and wonderful. If not… Card Scrapers will remove tear-out from even the most persnickety woods. They are cheap tools (you can even use a sacrificed saw blade…I have, and they work fine if you pick one without pitting near the cutting edge) but if you gra...

1428 days ago by mafe | 28 comments »

MaFeBurnisher BLOGscraper set up tool Ok I posted the project, and here are the blog, since there seems to be some wishes for that now… If there are wishes, I’ll make a work drawing with measures, but I think it’s quite ‘out the road’.(And thank you, I’m better today, so I could spend a little quality time in the work shop 2×40 min.). The project comes from different ideas I have seen around, and the fact I’m not all happy for my VERITAS...
