I am in love with Cabinet Scrapers. "What are Cabinet Scrapers?", I asked a few years back. I ordered a few and fell hard for them. In the past, I would spend a fair amount of time in the sanding phase of a project. Lots of sanding, lots of sandpaper, lots of dust.
A Cabinet Scraper acts like a bladed tool that can be a great stand-in for sanding. Rather than using an abrasive method to shape wood, Cabinet Scrapers remove super thin ribbons of wood to do the shaping.
