Forgive My Insensitivity…
A public Thank You is in order before I go any further. I had some great support from two individuals that are a part of LumberJocks.
I relied heavily on Dave Pruett for “on call” support to figure out how to edit / process / and post my video.
I need to thank Marc Spagnuolo as well. I did not continually call him like Dave, but his advice and pointers were taken to heart and helped me out as well.
As with my woodworking, my achievement with video is due to the support of others. Thank You!
The Lost Scene…
I forgot to add one scene in my video for the first post. It is kind of important because I use the cabinet scraper on a piece of reclaimed flooring with finish on it. First, I scrape off the finish (Oh boy does it explode off the board in front of the scraper!) and then I am able to start peeling the wood off in curls.
I did a re-edit and post, but you do not have to watch the whole video to see the lost scraper scene. You can see it here, it is just over a minute long:
If you haven’t seen the full video yet, it is available here:
I hope that this opens the door to the use of the card scraper for those that have struggled with the sharpening of this amazing tool.
I appreciate feedback and encourage any others that use card scrapers to post a blog with their perspective on the use of this tool.
