Our Swedish steel handscrapers
can be used for leveling the rosette to the top, for truing the purfling to the sides, top, and back, and for many other small jobs. The advantages over other smoothing tools are many: on hard-wood they can leave a smooth surface with less effort and expense than sandpaper; they can plane curves, twists, and are very controllable for depth of cut; they take an incredibly fine shaving (it is possible to read through a Rosewood shaving); and they do not clog.
- Use the thicker scrapers for heavier cutting
- Use the thinner scrapers for finer cutting and working on small curved areas.
- Use the swan neck scraper for convex and concave areas. Swedish steel, 1/2" x 6".
