I’m shopping for my first scraper. My current project is a set of bandsaw boxes that are oval in shape. They range from 3” to 6” high. I don’t know how to express what their radius is, but I would say “gentle to moderate”. The original ovals on the patterns were 3” x 5” for the smallest one and 7” x 11” for the largest one.
I want to scrape them, not sand them, because I plan to dye them to bring out the figure and the finishing recipe I am following recommends scraping.
Scraping the centers should be quite straightforward, but I’m wondering whether I’ll run into trouble on the ends. I’m assuming I want a standard, rectangular scraper. Would a super thin, super flexible one be what I want for getting around the ends of the ovals?
The wood is maple.
