Sandpaper, steel wool and abrasive pads work by scratching.
Planes and card scrapers work by cutting.

I learned about card scrapers from by Grandfather and Great Uncles about 40 years ago.
For them, card scrapers were an economical alternative to the expensive and hard to find sandpaper of their time. Besides, it was a tradition in their woodworking practices. Plus, the card scrapers created a better finish, with less work, less expense, less dust.

Ancient wisdom becomes your own when you self-discover this important skill.
