Listener Questions, Email, and Comments
Chuck – I enjoy your content, don’t like your language.
Jacob Spence – Hey guys,
I love the podcast and I started from the beginning so I’m not quite caught up yet but I have learned tons already.
My question is a simple one: I believe, when using a card scraper I have the same issue some people have with plane irons where the corners like to dig in slightly. Would this be an issue with how I burnish it or user error possibly? If neither of these are the problem would you chamfer the corners like on a plane iron?
Thanks for everything guys keep it up.
Answer: User error, Jacob. After proper tuning of your scraper you should flex the scraper with your thumbs pushing in the center and your fingers pulling in on the sides. Tilt the scraper forward slightly until the burr engages with the surface and push to make a cut. The corners should not be close to the surface of the wood.
