Cabinetmakers Scrapers at The Best Things
Cabinet Scrapers

A good set of cabinet scrapers are a fundamental building block of any cabinetmaker's shop. A classic rectangular scraper is an indespensible tool. In addition, a few curved scrapers are essential to having the basic capability most tradional woodworkers require. And of course, keeping them sharp is essential, so check out our Hock and Crown burnishers for sharpening these scrapers. Small, specially shaped scrapers are extremely handy if you are doing small and intricate work. In earlier days, these kinds of scrapers were made up as needed from bits of old worn out saw stock that was kept on hand for this purpose. Now, both Hishika and Thomas Flynn are offering some really nice quality precision detail scrapers in a range of different shapes to fulfill most needs. We think that this is a really clever and useful idea.

Hishika 5 pc Scraper Set
These scrapers come beautifully sharpened and ready to use. They cut wonderfully with hard wood. No scraper works very well on soft wood. The selection of shapes and small size gives them a broad range of applications. Just two examples of how we used them in cabinetmaking are cleaning up a ball and claw carving or a cornice molding.

Traditionally, cabinetmakers would have bits of broken saw blades in their tool chests that they had ground various common shapes on for cleaning up moldings. Thomas Flynn has now introduced an ingenious line of cabinet scrapers that incorporate the common shapes that cabinetmaker's typically need for cleaning up moldings. We think that these Thomas Flynn scrapers are one of the most clever ideas to come along in years.
