A few pieces of scrap some hardware and a cabinet scraper are all it takes to build a set of fine hand tools.
Removing marks and ridges left over from machining and hand tool shaping can be a challenge. For many of these types of tasks we turn to a scraper shave. This unique hand tool makes cleaning up and smoothing oddly shaped workpieces a pleasure. The gently curved handles are cut on a band saw and shaped to fit your hand. Using the shaves produces a smooth clean workpiece even when working with figured wood. The four versions include a flat-bottomed shave as well as two radius shaves designed especially for shaping round or curved pieces. You’ll also find plans for a notched shave that’s great for adding and smoothing chamfers.
