Custom Scraper Shaves

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.
