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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
