Card Scraper Stand (2005)
I've gotten almost no shop time over the last couple months. So I've purposely not started another "big" project, and have instead started to focus on small doodads that I can knock out in a few hours.
Here's a stand for my card scrapers. It's made from walnut and maple, and finished with orange shellac.
The lift on the ends of the walnut base is something I hadn't done previously, and it was quite challenging (but enjoyable) to make. I think it was subconsciously inspired by the furniture we saw on a recent trip to China. They look cool and make nice little grab handles.
Neat project that will come in handy around the shop.
