Woodworking tool review of one of our favorite woodworking hand tools.
Sorry, damn this Texas accent. I said drawers not doors.
interesting vid, I hope you will shoot some more to show why that tool is so great.
A cabinet scraper is a great tool for doing the finer work, such as finishing veneer or wild grain. Why this scraper is so useful for us as professional woodworkers are as follows:
speed of sharpening
easier to control
less strain on your hands
great for scraping harder glues like the ureas or epoxies
you can buy them down to 1/2" wide for scraping inside of mouldings
you can shape them to specific profiles with a die grinder
wow, thats fantastic. I'm gonna have to give it a try.
what about the tape mesure?
Who's narrating this? Al Gore?
Great tip. thanks for sharing.
This looks fantastic!!! I have to make one once my exams are over! Hopefully it will mean that I don't have to buy a spokeshave as I lost my last one and really can't be bothered to get a new one!
But yeah, great video… Keep up the good work!
LOVE LOVE this idea!
I'm a scraper addict and use regular cab scrapers and even spoke shaves for different finishing/refinishing tasks, but they're pricey, high maintenance and the T type handles can be awkward… This idea is just great! I'll be modding a couple 2.5" for an upcoming project, but I can already see in advance that I'll probably be regretting all the money I've laid in for 'proper' higher end scrapers.
This is just such a great idea. A+++ for posting it.
you sound like beetle juice. ITS SHOW TIME!
@crh62carpenter You can't make a simple dovetail in Texas without using a machine?
This guy is a tool, but not one we can work with. Haha! funny.
I love cabinet scrapers too.
Mr. Nitty Picky, Look at the shop he's in, do you think he would make dovetails without his machine? Relax and take his statement in context.
Just happened to watch this before heading out to the big box store to get some casters. I'll definitely pick up one or two of these things. Thanks o/
El Raspador: muy buena herramienta, soy impresor, pero me gusta mucho la carpintería, noble oficio (bendito sea San José). Esta herramienta la usaban mucho de antaños, su sencillez es sorprendente, usaban una lámina de vidrio previamente preparada, en una ocasión tuve la dicha de ver una echa de piedra sí como usted puede leer aquí de Piedra por supuesto de unos cuatro centimetros y montada en su portaherramienta. Viva el Raspador !
I am very happy to see the vidoe after you give this Woodworking tool review of one of our favorite woodworking hand tools.
I have a Canadian scraper which is just like this one after it has been transformed. Can't remember the trade name has it has bee erased for being used a lot (20 years !…) but it kept its yellow and green color … if this can help you people out there finding one.
Really handy …
hahaha… the guy who's a 'tool'. Some interesting tools shown in this video. Might have to get my hands on some. Thanks for the video!
I resurfaced an oak floor with one of these scrapers, a bucket of water helped to soften the floor
Works very much like a Skarsten scraper
It is hard to start a wood working project. I had created wasted a lot time & cash on my previous work. Then I found out the reason, that's I didn't have a detailed program & diagram. I always let things even worse when it could be solved simply if I had some experience. Then I discovered a woodworking system that contains all of the specific diagram, tips & tutorials – it help me lots.
You'll save time and energy when building wood furniture if you've got the comprehensive diagram & step-by-step tutorials.
Wow, I am so in awe of your drawl…and your big tools too. Big tools generally equate to big men.
