Looks really cool. Did you design that yourself?

Cool idea. Does it cut real shavings or just little sliver shavings?

Hi David I found the design in a Fine Woodworking book on Proven Shop Tips by Jim Richey based on their methods of work section of their magazine. It was an article on a home made wooden scraper plane by Brady C Blake from Redwood Miss, and based on his ideas I came up with a version of my own,

Julian: the plans called for the scraper the ground on a 45 then honed when I tryed this I get the shivers, when I leave the scraper square with a burr on it I get a thin shaving, I think I am going to cut a square scraper from a old saw that I make scrapers from and sharpen all four edges two sq and two on a 45 plus the saw metal is a little thicker.

Thanks for the interest I wrote more about how I build this plan on my blog if you want to check it out.

Nice one Joey

Maybe you could think about using wedges to alter the angle of attack of the scraper for different woods and conditions – I like the idea of using an old saw blade to make additional blades.

When I first started woodworking seriously, I made a ton of my own hand tools. It was ill advised. This is a much better tool than my early attempts, just shows perhaps tool making is best reserved for the more experienced….
