Scraper Holder

My last project with the bookcases renovation was the reason that pushed me to try building a scraper holder.

The design is you will see is very basic, the only difference I made to it was to make round backing wood on the butterfly screw for better support of the blade.

The wood I used was some left over padauk I had which had 4 screw holes on it which I cover with some drywall screws just for decoration.

The backing round wood was attached to the butterfly screw with a t-nut and some epoxy and everything was flash at the front side.

The scraper blade camber is about 3.2 – 3.5mm

That’s great Steliart, gives you something to hold onto other than the card scraper it’s self…excellent idea.

Nice idea. Quite similar to the Veritas scraper holder, but cheaper and more fun. I have one of the Veritas ones. I generally scrape freehand, but sometimes when scraping a lot it can help save your hands.

I have never used a scraper but looks like a great hand saver.

Thanks guys for watching and commenting.
This is not my idea, the only think that I added into it was that round backing wood on the butterfly screw.
It works very good on flat boards, but if you need to get close to tight corners the holder is in the way, freehand is the way.

Yea the basic design is mostly the same, just cheaper as you said :)
I have this tendon problem in my hands and the other day when scraping the a bookcase gave me some paint, so I thought this might help in future.

ldl, you should try a scraper is a cheap tool with amazing results, especially when it comes to fine tuning.

Having just finishing up building a table, I could have used this to hold my card scraper to save my hands. It’s amazing how hot a simple scraper can get with continuous use. Really burns the fingers.
Steliart, I first became familiar with your workshop from the article in Fine Woodworking a few years ago, and I believe you have successfully disproved the old axiom, and you really can put 10 pounds of “stuff” in a 5 pound sack”
Thanks for showing, I’ll need to make one of these for my next project.

Thanks for the comment, nice to know that we have met before even if it was through an article.
My workshop has moved on since those days, but that one will always stay in my heart.
