Cabinet scraper storage

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.

Fantastic bit of shop organization & a bandsaw “box?” at that!!! I find making shop fixtures a very rewarding experience.

It is the “little things” that make shop time more efficient and fun. Keep up the good work.

Looks like you are moving at a pretty good pace. Got the band saw figured out? Nice shop organizer!

Nice holder Sandra. I’ve not gotten into using the scrapers …yet. When I get my new shop built I might have to give ‘em a try

Now that is a good way to store them. A scrapper block.

Nice! But now you need to make a scraper holder for when you use them. MUCH easier on your hands! I never used my scrapers until I saw/made the holder. Now I use em all the time.

Nicely done it sure beats digging thru the pile in hopes of finding any scraper let alone the one you were looking for.

Looks very neat,

I have a few but I keep them in a oil soaked rag in a plastic envelope, as I am scared they will rust on me if exposed to the air all the time.

Very boring compared to your set.
