Couple of questions about your tooling...

I agree with you about the smoothing plane. I have several so I can keep them set to take different cuts. My favorite is a brass #3 Lie-Nielsen. The sound of it being sharp and slicing the thinnest layer is just magic.

I havenít heard you talk about card scrappers and I am learning about using them. Do you use scrappers? How do you use them? While I donít build guitars I am trying to get to the point where I donít use sandpaper when I do my woodworking.

Thanks for all your insights.

The Princess looked at her more closely. "Tell me," she resumed, "are you of royal blood?"
"Better than that, ma'am," said Dorothy. "I came from Kansas."
