Scraper shaves my way
closer to the cave man…
Scrapers allow you to make finish like no other tool, it bring out the life of the wood, it show you the music.
The scraper shaves are just a way to hold the scrapers, no magic at the end.
This is a post from my blog: Scraper shaves my way , a blog that made me get deeper into understanding the soul of woodworking.
Or to others just a tutorial in how to make a scraper shave.
Fellow LJ’s like Karson inspired me to go there, and shopnotes magazines article was the base for my journey.
Thank you both.
Take a look at the blog if you are curious: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/23003 , but I warn it is a seven blogs way to go…
1. The eight scraper shaves.
2. An old mahogany table leg becomes a tool.
3. The shape starts to show.
4. The last oil.
5. Closer to perfection, but still a tool.
6. What a mess!
This became more than tools to me, thank you to all that followed the blog.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
