« Part 18: Drilled dowel holes, applied shellac, charred stiles & rails, wire brushed Part 19 of Plantation Shutters series Part 20: Stiles, Rails, Louvers: all assembled ready for HVLP'ing »

I jacked my elbow last month at my day time job giving me some serious tennis elbow I had it once before and it took forever to fade away so I took it easy til I felt it was ok to do the vigorous scraping that I knew would be required.
Here is Saturday results: everything charred & scraped. whew. It’s a workout. Almost the same as hand sanding upon MDF. Gots the frames cleaned up and the louvers. In one of the pictures below, you can see the difference between a charred surface and a scraped with wire brush surface.

-- The Carpenter Bee is derived from the Ancient Greek word wood-cutter "xylokopos/ξυλοκὀπος"
