Ted’s Signature Grind Finesse Scrapers
$60.00 – $287.00
These scrapers are designed primarily for use on spindle-oriented work but can also be used on bowls. They are for finessing the final form after cutting the initial shape with a gouge. Many beautiful woods with character are difficult to cut with standard chisels like crotch wood, curly maple, or spalted wood. The final finessing cut is almost impossible to achieve without getting tiny catches that need repair with 100 grit sandpaper or worse. Trying to control a gouge on wood that exhibits both curl and plain grain is quite challenging. The gouge’s cut is “squirrely.” Another example is when repairing spalted maple with CA glue. Trying to cut both soft and glue-reinforced areas with a gouge is very frustrating. Using a negative rake scraper is the only sane way to finesse the form. It works so well I now finesse scrape before sanding all of my pieces. Find out more about the finesse scraper by watching the video below.
