I am buiding shelves and Cabinets for my library and I will have several large solid cherry counter tops. When I get ready to finish the tops I had planned to use regular hand held cabinet scrapers. As I get older and the arthritis in my hands gets worse it becomes harder and harder to use a hand held scraper.
This has gotten me thinking about using a scraper plane either Lie Nielsen or Veritas. My assumption is that it will be a lot easier on my hands but I am wondering about the results. Is there a difference in the results between the two kinds of scrapers. I am interested in the quality of the finish as well as the amount of time and effort.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated as well as recommendations on the choice between LN and LV Scraper Planes.
