Finshed Scraper Plane




Scrap maple Curve in the front block Layout before the glue up














Glued and rough shaped with the wedge and scraper




It makes fine shavings. Water damage on some Walnut burl veneer just perfect for this scraper



Few passes and it's all cleaned up, and @ $63 for 4 sq ft you don't want to sand or plane through it.


Scraper plane all finished shaped and sanded and ready for use

I just put the first coat of an oil finish on it, and it looks great. it make fine shaving with very little effort. I think I will make another one maybe a cove scraper I really hate scraping cove rail.

Peace Everyone
Joey

Very cool build! What did you use for your scraper material, and why did you choose the particular angle you did for the iron? Thanks for stimulating me - I'm going to do one of these, too!

I just used an old card scraper I had, But I plan on cutting a scraper out of a old saw I use to make scrapers, because is a little thicker.
I used a 45 because that is what the plan in the article called for, I think a steeper angle would work just as well maybe better and when I build my cove scraper I think I will play with the angle before finale assembly.
