Does anyone have any pictures of some of the scraping tools you use or have made? Any tips or tricks for making them or profiles?
Thanks in advance

The one with the longest handle is a triangle scraper. If you cannot find one they can be made from a triangle file with a bit of grinding and polishing. Fifth from the left is a knife graver and when given a face without the removed portion, the two edges of the face make excellent scrapers for larger areas when flattening background and such.

Also, I find the burnisher makes a good concave scraper if you keep the edges sharp.

Hi All, after taking a used hacksaw blade and bending in half, follow the lenght of the blades to the bend and carfully apply pressure to snap it, after joining and stoning they make excellent wood scrapers.............not so much steel. Rob
