Some woodworking experience recommended.

Mastering the Card Scraper 

Anyone can learn to use and maintain a card scraper, and should.   

Also called a cabinet scraper, this is a simple, inexpensive tool that can eliminate or shorten sanding time, reduce dust, and improve your finishes.    

Get rid of those squirrels random orbit sander marks with a few simple strokes.   Using the card scraper between sanding grits allows you to step up to finer grits more quickly and with better results.  Or get rid of sandpaper altogether in many cases.  

For those still exploring the craft world to experienced woodworkers.  Every shop apron is improved with a card scraper or two in a pocket.  This class puts one in yours along with everything you need to keep it working for you.

Saturday, July 17 from 9AM-11:30AM
