Here’s the card scraper I made using a 3/4” Baltic birch plywood scrap, a shop-made knob, a T-nut, four screws and four washers.

Finally, a finger relief for long scraping sessions!

Find more photos and details on this page of my blog.

Thanks for looking.

At first glance that knob looks like a bed frame clamp knob. Lol

Great job to solve an annoying “hot” topic.

Anybody who hasn’t checked out Bricofleur's website really should. I stumbled upon it while viewing the center-finding thingamajig thread, and found it to be chock full of interesting, unusual, and helpful shop tips, jigs, and projects. Most impressed by the bilingual descriptions! Fine work.

A very fine post, I know I will make one, and I bet many others will too.

Good job.

That’s a great idea Serge! I too came across Bricofleur’s website. I snapped back to reality several hours later with a few thousand shop projects on my to do list!
