Card scraper stands
quick and clean.

Yes this is no rocket science, but a quick and joyful practical project that can be made even if all the tools you own is a handsaw and you need no experience to make it.
The reason I never made one before are the fact I only had a few card scrapers, so I had no need.
The reason I share this project are that I think it’s a wonderful simple project that organize and can make the tools be at hand when needed.


I used to have only three card scrapers (Bahco & Sandvik), the three top left, but when I bought a lot of sharpening stones on E-bay recently, two brown packs of card scrapers came with it.
(Guess it means my homemade saw blade scrapers are not going to happen).


You can see the brown oiled paper packs, two sets of card scrapers in different sizes.


Had some scrap hard wood, two sizes.
Cut them to sizes, one for a table stand and one for a wall hanging version, in this way I can see what I like the most after and pick my favorite.


A quick sanding.


The blade set to an angle and then repetitive cuts, I did not bother to measure, just used my eyes.


A little Danish oil and the card scrapers are placed in the table top holder.


Second version are the wall hanging version, it has a hole in the back, so it can be easy put on the table also.
This is the one I choose, since it can then be off the table when not in use.


That’s it, card scarpers right where they are needed.

Hope this post can inspire to make some workshop order, perhaps be a good beginner project.

I thought that the holder was to use while using the tool, not for storage. Nice idea though. I like it.

Ok, I see, changed the name now to stands, is that more right (I’m Danish you know).
Thanks.

Very nice Mads. The part that baffles me is why someone who only owned a handsaw would want to make a card scraper stand ................. but then Christmas is coming, maybe he has a request in to Santa. :-)

Thanks, Mads!

I need to make one of these and get my scrapers out of that plastic pack they came in.

Rob,

You just have to squeeze the Dane until he starts dripping the oil…

Hi there,
Yes not much of a project, more made of wood, than a project. ;-)
But a big step for MaFe’s order.
Herb, you got it! We sweat oil in Denmark. ;-)

Paul I was actually thinking just like you when I wrote the words, think I’m learning this happens once in a while. ;-) Yes, Christmas might be the answer, if he only have a handsaw.
Thanks guys.
