Now that I have a workbench, I’m spending some time getting my shop in order. I’m starting to learn how to use and maintain hand planes and am just starting with cabinet scrapers.
While tuning up my bandsaw last night, I took a piece of maple left over from my benchtop and decided to make a holder for the scrapers. The idea came from the 3rd picture which I found at www.wkfinetools.com.
On the bandsaw, I cut off about 3/8” from each side, then made the grooves. Glued the sides back on, and then cut the curves.
Sanded by hand and then used a bit of walnut stain and wipe on poly.
It was a fun little project, and will keep my card scrapers nice and tidy. Finished dimensions are 6 1/2” x 3” x 1 3/4”.
-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.
