Todd’s latest video, The Easy Way to Sharpen a Card Scraper, originally posted here is now featured as part of Wood Magazine’s instructional videos. It can be seen here. This is a wonderful way to recognize Todd’s craftsmanship and dedication to helping others improve their woodworking skills and techniques.

Thanks guys, I am just trying to get the good word spread on card scrapers. Hopefully it will open some doors out there and get guys using them that could not figure out the more complicated (but valid) method.

I do think that if a person figures this out it will get them using it. Once they get the mechanics of the scraper figured out they will be able to move forward to honing and burnishing if desired.

Todd,

You certainly deserve this honor!

Your manner and approach to education/demonstration allows the viewer to easily grasp the techniques and procedures necessary to be successful.

Keep up the great work. Looking forward to learning more with you.

TThomas – I plan on it, time is always the issue since I have to make a living.

My Montana slideshow was a practice run at figuring out my program. I think that I can go back and create some narrated slideshow with live intro to cover some of the important aspects or challenges of projects. This means that I would not have to do as much video recording and I could give some great background and insight to the projects that I have already done.
