Editor's Review:

by Philip C. Lowe

review date: February 1, 2006

The eight-piece set of Auriou cabinetmaker's scrapers, which comes with a micro-burnisher, fits a wide variety of moldings made by both older molding planes and newer router bits. The African rosewood handles fit comfortably in hand. The flattened profile and oval ferrule prevent the scrapers from rolling off the bench and allow them to be held in a vise for burnishing the edges. Beware: Turning the burr on some of the smaller profiles takes some concentration.

At $229 for the set (www.thebestthings.com), with smaller sets available, these tools might be a luxury purchase for some woodworkers, but well worth it for those who can afford it.
