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.
