“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
Useful for scraping highly figured and curly woods, smoothing out knots, and removing glue. To some degree it combines the function of a handscraper and a plane, in that it levels like a plane but saves on tired thumbs. The blade can be sharpened to use as a normal scraper or with a 30º-45º angle on the blade for faster and finer cutting. Because the thumb screw in the back bows the scraper, there is no need to round the corners, they shouldn't catch.
