    If you want something that’s small and somewhat brief, The joint book is pretty cool.

    in reply to: Hand Scrappers #2026750

    I watched basically every video there was on youtube, tried things 50 different ways, and ultimately just sat down at the bench and tried different things until I finally got something that could give me shavings. It just took a lot of practice, and I definitely got frustrated a few times.

    I think the easiest thing to do is to try sharpening the scraper with just a file (you don’t even burnish it). This can give you shavings in some hardwoods, but won’t be that great, and won’t work for softer woods. From here, it’s easier to figure out how to improve on the quality of the edge, then you figure out how to roll burrs, and then you don’t feel like chucking your sharpening setup across the room.

    How thin are the panels? I’m making something that is somewhat similar, and trying to decide how many times I can get away with resawing a board to make a panel for the back.
