We are wood workers Right?
I like to find ideas from others on the internet and make my own tools
This is by far my favotite…..I was using it long before it was ready to post.
Knob is turned spalted Beech, handle is mahogany & Jarra?
threaded screws are brass as is the threaded insert.
It makes taking away glue lines a breeze..
Make one for yourself…

Lots of examples on the internet.
Thanks to “Ratchet, Julian and Lignified” for their inspirations…

Hi Nice work. It looks good. I have to make one in the near future, so thanks for the inspiration.

I made a pair of these several years ago and really enjoy using them (no more hot or cramped fingers). BUT mine are just functional. Yours are a work of art!

Smokes! Thats what I call taking it to the next level. It looks like it would be very comfortable on the hands.
Thanks for sharing it with us.

That’s one good looking scraper! Great build especially the spalted knob.

Have your say...
