Sharpening A Scraper Master Class- Link Van Cleave

One of my friends on Facebook posted this video about how to sharpen a wood scraper by a guitar maker that she knows.

I was impressed that this video correctly shows us not just the “How” but also the “Why” of the steps needed when sharpening this tool.

The lessons in this video provide a master class of insights into the issues of sharpening any tool by hand.

The overall lesson that I took from this is the importance of properly holding our workpiece (in this case the tool) so that we don’t put distortions into it.

PS:  Look at the chips!

PPS: Do you have a favorite “Love of the Craft” video that you think we should share?
