Some time ago, 105 days ago to be precise, I posted a forum question asking woodworkers who do not use card scrapers “why not?”. The intention was to get information which would help me make a video. As life has a way of getting in the way of plans, it took some time before I could make the video, but it has finally arrived.
I look forward to your feedback.
Here is the link to the video and the writeup from my video page:
If you have been getting less than satisfactory results with your card scraper, then perhaps this video is for you. Often it may seem that the process of preparing a card scraper is downright mystical, and that those can do it have some sort of magic. However I do not like mysticism and magic, and I find more often than not, that there is simply a single link missing in the chain that keeps woodworkers from getting shavings out of their card scrapers. Hopefully this video will help you flush out whatever is keeping you from getting those sought after shavings, and send you on your way to scraping utopia.
P.S. I noticed, this morning, that in IE7 the tabs on my website are a little funky, but that everything otherwise functions OK. I am looking into this issue and should have it fixed shortly.
