Scraper shave rack
Asian style

My new made scrapers were lying on the table looking a mess, and this was not possible for my sensitive heart to look at, so right away I made them a rack.


Easy to carry.

Decided to go for a simple Asian inspiration since these scraper shaves reminded me of Japanese swords when they were hanging.

The scraper shaves were made from an old mahogany table leg, and the rack was made from three trashed parquet floorboards.

Pictures:
1. Scraper shaves in the rack.
2. Three parquet floor boards found in the street.
3. Marking.
4. Drilling.
5. Paring with my new Iles chisels.
6. Rag time…

So this was the little extra I spoke of.

Take a look at the scraper shave blog if you are curious: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/23003 , but I warn it is a seven blogs way to go…

Hope it can be to some inspiration,

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Mads,

I have been considering making a rack of sorts like this for my spoke shaves. I don't have any a nice as these scraper shaves you have made, but they still deserve to be properly stored.

Mafe, I think Dennis has confused your scrapers with devices used to shave Parmizan cheeze !
;-}
But WOW, you just don't know how to quit do you ?
Another great project(s) anf super tutorial.

Hi Mads, very nice rack to neatly hold the new scrapers! It is sweet. I am amazed at how much you do with hand tools. That old brace you have in the picture-I've never see one of them with the screw to hold in the bit. I can see you appreciate and treasure the old tools. Nice job as usual, my friend!!............Jim

Super job Mads. I am so envious of your skill and creativity.

Patron-They say that the knees are the first to go and then the mind but having lost both, I can tell you for a fact that the mind goes first!

I don't know if it's Mads' personality or just his karma streaming off of him but just looking at his photos brings a smile to my face. There's always an interesting tool or used surface in the background. I feel privileged to gaze at his work.
