    Sharpen and Use a Cabinet Scraper

    Once you try a cabinet scraper to smooth flat surfaces or curved sculpted forms, you’ll want to use it on all your projects. This tool has greatly reduced the sand-ing time in my shop. It creates a polished surface on even the orneriest wood, and it’s easy to sharpen and use. It’s avail-able for $7 at wood specialty stores.
