    Negative Rake Scraper

    While we are on tools and didn't want to steal Larry's post. How many of you use a negitive rake scraper? I think this is one scraper that you actually ride the bevel and what I have seen is for smoothing hard woods.

    I made a negative rake scraper similar to the one used by Cindy Drozda in her box video from a 3/4" square scraper that I was not using anymore. It was too thin at 1/4" for what I wanted in a square scraper and decided to give it a new shot at life as a negative rake scraper.

    I beveled both the top and the bottom into a broadly rounded scraper and then sharpened it with a very steep bevel around 75 degrees. I use it with the sharp bevel up and hone off the burr with a diamond. To my surprise when I used it on end grain it cut fine little ribbons and curls off of some of the hardest woods I use leaving a remarkably smooth surface needind little sanding. I use it primarily for smoothing the concave surfaces of the bottoms of my boxes. It works very well for that.

    If I can find a blank of HSS 1/4" thick and 3/8" wide I would like to make a similar one to use inside of my box lids.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    I use one that I ordered from, I think Craft Supply. That Stu guy recommend it. It is an Evi Avisera one that they had to order and it took 2 months. I really like it and use it a lot.
