A week ago I wanted to make a Cabinet Scraper and instead made a learning experience. I was not going to let that stop me from achieving my goal so I set to making this hand tool with all hand tools.

Now I am going to give it away to one lucky winner.

The sole is made from Curly White oak, and it had to be stabilised somewhat with epoxy. The Handel is made of Peruvian Walnut. The Blade was from an old saw and is about 1/16” thick.

The whole project took one day to put together, about 6 hours of actual work, and it was so worth the work.

If you want to see a detailed video fo the build here you go. the video also lists how you can win this toy (tool)

Aloha James,
Nice . A ‘wooden # 80’ . I wonder how durable white oak is for its sole plate ? Kiawe ,alggarroba , as its called here in Hawaii or Mesquite as you know it in the mainland is so dense it was used for cobblestones in Texas roads before asphalt . We have it as a very favored wood both for crafts and cooking
[James, I had written you about the tool gifting , did any of my mail find its way to you?]

Thanks the white oak is actually very durable. I like using it for plane soles. this curly grain is even harder than normal white oak. there are better woods for it, but I love the look of this and this is far more common around here. I thought I responded you to you. sorry, some thing must not have gone through. I am grateful for the offer but due to shipping prices I just do not have the funds to take advantage of it.
